So before we say anything else - we really want your Japan recommendations. We’re leaving next week, so we promise not to ask again :)
In other news, this past week was really exciting for a few reasons:
We helped launch the first ever product on behalf of the NYC Agriculture Collective. It’s a farm share box that we are currently testing, and will launch more seriously in October, after NYC Ag Tech Week. Stay tuned for more information about future flash sales, and thank you to our amazing sponsors Five Acre Farms and Burlap and Barrel for helping us increase access to and education about local, wholesome food. We love y’all!
Shelley participated in a moving and very inspirational panel at The Alchemist’s Kitchen, alongside our friends and fellow Collective members from AeroFarms, Feedback Farms, Sky Vegetables, Farm.One, Square Roots and Swale, titled “What’s Fresh On Your Plate?”. The panel was moderated by Tinia Pinia from Re-Nuble who, as always, did a great job keeping both the audience, and the moderators, interested in the ongoing discussions.
We got to recipe test a bunch! It’s not such a big deal, but we loveeee recipe testing, so please let us know if you have any need for it. We’d love to work with you!
We’ve had some really great feedback from the press, and from the extended NYC Agriculture Collective network, with regards to NYC Ag Tech Week, taking place all over the City from September 16-21st. If you haven’t already purchased your tickets, we suggest checking out some of the more than 20 events going on, and maybe participating while giving back to the Collective! If you’re a member of the press, and are interested in attending, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to secure your media pass.
