On-campus Farmer’s Market Cancelled

submitted by greena@augsburg.edu

Because of low vendor interested and staff capacity this year, the West Bank Farmer’s Market has been cancelled. Even though we’ll miss the weekly lunch break with farmers and local vendors, we look forward to this opportunity to have some community conversations about food and food access over the coming months to see if we can re-group for next year. If you’re interested in being part of these conversations or sharing your thoughts about the on-campus farmer’s market, talk with Allyson (greena@augsburg.edu)! You can find days and times for other markets on the Homegrown Minneapolis site. You can also get fresh produce delivered to you on campus every Friday by signing up for a CSA share with Tangeltown Gardens! Contact Nell Gerhke (gehrken@augsburg.edu) for more info.

And if you were hoping to stock up on jam and granola from our local canned goods vendor, B’s Home Cannery, don’t worry – you an still get some! Allyson will have a box of blueberry, strawberry, strawberry-rhubarb, and rhubarb jams in 4-oz jars ($3.50), 8-oz jars ($4.50), and 16-oz jars ($5.50), and some quart jars of granola ($8) in her office starting next week. You can stop by and grab some anytime until they’re gone.

Thanks for your support of the market over the years! We look forward to whatever adventure comes out of this next year!

Review, Implement Your ‘Department Name Change Checklist’

submitted by weisss@augsburg.edu

With only about 60 days remaining before we officially are Augsburg University, now is the time for individual departments to start digging into the work needed at the departmental level to ensure our campus is transformed by September 1.

Early in July, faculty department chairs and administrative department leaders will receive an email from Jodi Collen, Senior Director of University Events, that includes your “Department Name Change Checklist.” The checklist will provide a list of all the items your department will need to update.

To help you get started, check out the latest blog posting on the University Name Change section of our website for detailed information on your Department Name Change Checklist and more information on each of the important steps listed below:

–Block Time on Your Calendar
–Review Your Department Name Change Checklist
–Attend a Name Change Help Session
–Download the Task Tracker

There’s no doubt that the Name Change Project is exciting, even though it is exceptionally complex. We truly are at the point where we now require the participation from all members of our community to ensure we reach our shared goal of being recognized as Augsburg University beginning September 1.

There are some fun events planned for our first day of classes, September 5, that will make this push and pull worth celebrating! Please stay tuned for more information. In the meantime, thank you for your understanding and for picking up the tasks for which your department is responsible. We have much to celebrate!

Donate Paper or Plastic Bags to Campus Kitchen

submitted by greena@augsburg.edu

Instead of recycling those paper or plastic bags taking up space in your house, bring them to Campus Kitchen! Every Saturday from now until November, we’ll be gleaning produce from the Mill City Farmer’s Market, packing it up into sample bags, and distributing it to elders in Cedar-Riverside. If you have *clean* paper or plastic grocery bags, please drop them off at the Campus Kitchen closet next to the elevator on the top floor of Christensen (near kitchen back entrance). We use 30-40 bags per week, so keep them coming!

(If you really want to recycle those plastic bags, though, you can take them back to a grocery store or Target)
