The 2010-2011 year was busy as we kept up with our favorite events and added new events. Some of the highlights of the last year included Earth Day events, Hoes Down events, Alternative Gifts Fairs, and Passing on the Gift activities. We also kept busy with special "12 Stones" events, the Federation of Womens' clubs partnership, Girl Scout Thinking Day, and various presentations and fundraisers for Heifer.

III. Brainstorming possible activities for the upcoming year produced this list:
Here are a list of activities we have planned for the 2011-2012 year:
  • Networking with colleges
  • Booths at farmers' markets
  • Partnerships with entities supporting local food systems
  • Sacramento Area Reading Association Mini-Conference
  • "Passing on the Gift" Events
  • Heifer Library Summer Reading Program
  • Reach out to Soroptimist clubs
