Sprouts AGM and Invitation to "South of the Table" Events

Hi everyone,

1.A message from Jeremy, Store Coordinator at Sprouts:

Hello Friends,
This is just a reminder about tomorrow's AGM at 6:30 in the store. We'll look back at our past year, look to the future, vote on some constitutional amendments, and confirm next year's board - all while enjoying some refreshments provided by Sprouts. Come even if you haven't volunteered.

Our end of year liquidation is still going strong. In addition of what's in the bulk bins, you can buy our baking ingredients at cost. Over the next couple of days, these things will be showing-up in pre-weighed bags. Drop me a line if you want to learn more about what we have kicking around.


2. As mentioned last week, Community Eats has been working with the class of Geography 495 to create awareness about translocal food sovereignty. Here are some more events that are being organized collaboratively under the name "South of the Table"...

"Geography 495 is a community service learning course at UBC focusing on the promotion of local, ethical community food production in Vancouver and Oaxaca, Mexico. The seminar is taught by Juanita Sundberg in collaboration with the Women's Cooperative Margarita Magón from Oaxaca, CIPO-RFM, CIPO-VAN, the Wilderness Committee, and Sprouts at UBC.
