Wednesday Worksheet #3: Analyzing your Locavore-ability

18 Sep

In a new move for this blog, we’ve come up with four printable worksheets, which we’ll post on Wednesdays this month.  We all need a little back-to-school type fun this month, right?  So download, print and enjoy!  If you feel so inclined, snap a photo of yourself and your worksheet and share with us on Facebook and Twitter!  Make sure you tag, tag, tag!

This third worksheet challenges you to identify characteristics of an entity you’d like to make more local-food-and-farming friendly.  Could be your household, your group of friends, or even your own self.  A Strength-Weakness-Opportunity-Threat analysis is a classic way for any group to get a quick picture of their situation, and we highly encourage you to try it out and share with others.  It’s hard to TAKE ACTION if you haven’t brainstormed some of the main characteristics you’ll encounter within your locavore challenge.

This week we are providing you with a worksheet that is very near to our hearts at NOFA-NY.  As we are constantly interacting with people who are new to our organization, we’ve learned the value of concise messaging about the our mission, vision and any program we run.  Similarly, you’ll be able to talk with confidence about the Locavore Challenge if you’ve crafted sort of an elevator pitch to explain why you just refused the boxed (and not from a source you’re including in your local-foods diet) cookies at your staff meeting.

Your first worksheet is all about creating a strategy.  We’ve been focused on ways to incorporate Locavore actions into your lives, but this worksheet might help link all the ideas you want to try to how you’ll make it happen.  Think about a few concrete actions and strategies that will really work into your life, then think of a few ways to stretch yourself.  That’s what this worksheet wants you to do!

Our Blog’s Locavore Challenge: More Posting, More Fun!

30 Aug

For the month of September, we’re going to up the frequency of blog posts, since it’s Locavore Challenge Month, officially!  Here’s the schedule:

Each Monday, we’ll introduce a theme and briefly explain.

Throughout the week we’ll be sharing stories and information tied to that theme, from staff and friends of NOFA-NY.

On Wednesdays, as a break from we-post-you-read, we’re going to invite you to do a short exercise to help you learn, grow and focus on the weekly theme (and be a bit more competitive to win a prize if you decide to host a Harvest Celebration Dinner).

Sundays we hope to catch you in a moment when you can read a longer rumination (that’s a food world word!).  You might learn how NOFA-NY staff are dealing with the week’s theme or might even find your own images or words that we’ve nabbed from Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook (so don’t forget to tag if you want us to see it!).  We’re not going to commit to a particular style for Sundays, just that we hope to keep you entertained while you wait for your water-bath canner to heat up, or while you relax with a local beer in one hand and an ear (or three) of corn on the grill.

Our promise overall: lots of stories!

Our request: talk back!  We maintain this blog and all our social media as a way to create a conversation around local and organic food.  Please post, like, share and comment (with respect)!
