We should all participate in our community in some way! It helps us feel connected to the people around us and provides us with accomplishment in knowing we are helping others. That is something that is very hard to come by and unfortunately not enough of this is happening!
We are a part of the Slow Food movement, which is something I learned about while attending Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts. Tears came to my eyes when I first heard about it and I made sure I was a big part of this movement. I became president of the Slow Foods Club and we were able to help on a local farm with chores necessary to keep it going. This is just a little description of my involvement within this, of course I’ll tell more as time comes. But for now, I will post pictures of our Farmer Market visits to help inspire others to do the same.
Another community involvement we are a part of is Hands on Atlanta and Meals on Wheels. This is a 100% volunteer program in assisting our less fortunate that cannot provide meals for themselves. We will donate our time to deliver hot meals to those in need.
Last but not least, we are part of The Astronomy Club of Atlanta. This is one of my favorite groups. We meet once a week at the Fernbank Science Center to talk about the “haps” in our universe as well as listen to a guest speaker. Every New Moon the group meets up two hours north of the city, (away from light pollution) to observe the nights sky. So invigorating!
