Sustainable Agriculture Chat on Twitter: How Are You Engaging with Your Community Around Food?

Sustainable Agriculture Chat (#sustagchat) is back again this week on Sunday night on Twitter, with the question: how are you engaging with your community around food?

The 1 1/2 hour discussion will begin this Sunday June 7th at 8pm ET. We hope you can come out! All are welcome to join the chat, just please announce yourself at the beginning by telling everyone your name and affiliations, and use the #sustagchat tag on your tweets in order to create a searchable dialog. A helpful program to use is Tweetchat — enter the room “sustagchat” and #sustagchat will show up on all your posts automatically. You are welcome to send questions and comments to our moderator, @sustagchat.

Moderating this week will be me (@civileater), mostly via the @sustagchat moniker.  You can read more about me down below this post in my bio. I do hope you will join us in the chat this week. Last week was so positive and productive!

Please feel free to send some ideas our way, but here’s some food for thought to get the chat rolling —

Q1. What do you do in your community to engage people on food issues? Are you a CSA member, chef, writer, community gardener, advocate, farmer’s market patron, or do you participate in some other community food affairs?

Q2.  Are you a farmer/value added producer? How are you connecting with you buyers? Has this changed in the last few years?

Q3. Do you have idea for your community that you would like to implement? What is standing in your way?

Q4. Has connecting with your community through food changed it?

We can swap stories, discuss how-tos, and the creative ways you are connecting through food. Looking forward!

We’ll bring the news to you.

  1. Sounds great though not much help for us in Europe (bit late for me), maybe we need to start a #sustagchat for our timezone
