All --

I have heard from very few people about the Metro get-together tentatively planned for tomorrow, and apparently there is a major winter storm blowing through here for the next several days. It might be a bummer to be on the patio in bad weather, and I'd like to see more of the folks who said they would be interested in a neighborhood group, so I am suggesting a change of date to February 16th, also at 9 o'clock and pending Erika's ok on gathering at Metro on that day.

In the meantime, please chat this up with your neighbors and let's get as many people involved as we can. You do not have to be a garden-obsessed foodie to join in... it happens to be a passion of mine and a main tenet of what I want to do, but the point is to build a strong neighborhood community. So tell a friend!

So -- Feb 16. All in favor?

Meet your neighbors at Metro 1/26

Hello people!

As promised, I am beginning to shake off the post-holiday overwhelm and move on with life. Erika Pringsheim-Moore, owner of the lovely Metro restaurant at the bottom of our little hill, has graciously offered the patio for us to meet up and discuss our budding local produce movement.

The proposed date is 1/26/08 at 9:30 in the morning, for about one hour. Coffee and some kind of light breakfast snack will be served, and it's a family affair for sure.

Please RSVP if you would, since if most people don't find this date convenient I will move it into february. This will be just a get-to-know-you for the most part, and all sierra vista folk are welcome.

If you still want to be involved, please tell your neighbors to come! This little adventure will definitely get more exciting the more people we can involve.

I've made contact with the people at deer hill ranch to see if they were interested in joining up with us (they sell fresh eggs and grass fed beef). They seemed enthusiastic about the idea of a local food sourcing venture (though they didn't seem to want to offer us a group discount on their six-buck-a-dozen eggs -- yet!) Anyway, there's much to discuss, but for now, in the short dormant season, let's just chat and learn a bit more about each other. I look forward to meeting those of you whom I don't already know in person.

Please let me know if the breakfast date works for you.

Best, Amy
