Slow Food O’ahu Annual Meeting – Sunday, February 15, 2015 – DATE CHANGE

Slow Food O’ahu Annual Meeting – Sunday, February 15, 2015  – DATE CHANGE
3989 Diamond Head Rd.   11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. 

Our Annual Meeting and Potluck Lunch is set for February 15, 2015.  Please mark your calendars. Please note that we have changed the date (previously announced as February 1, 2015) due to a conflict with the SuperBowl.
Our Board has been working diligently during the year and would like to develop the capacity of the organization by expanding the membership and creating working committees that are able to focus on events, advocacy, our Snail of Approval program with restaurants, etc.  We have started by formalizing bylaws that we plan to present to the members at the Annual Meeting.  If you are interested in previewing the bylaws, you may find a copy here.  We also hope to expand our membership – so if you are interested in taking on a more proactive role, whether it be planning events, advocacy on sustainability issues, contacting restaurants for our Snail of Approval, writing the newsletter, etc. – please come to our meeting.


In addition to the business portion of the meeting, our featured speaker at the meeting will be Dr. Ted Radovich, Associate Specialist at the Sustainable and Organic Farming Systems Laboratory of the CTAHR Program at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. The laboratory focuses on the ecology, yield and quality of food crops, with a special emphasis on the links between pre-harvest management practices and crop quality.Dr. Radovich specializes in ecology, yield and quality of food crops. His research program is focused on understanding how crop yield and quality can be optimized in agricultural systems that reduce reliance on conventional chemical inputs and increase use of ecological farming practices.

Of course, no Slow Food O’ahu Annual meeting would be complete without a potluck.  After our business meeting and presentation by Dr. Radovich, we will share in the great local food that defines a Slow Food O’ahu event.  Please bring your dish to share.

The location of this year’s Annual meeting is 3989 Diamond Head Road, near the intersection of 22nd Ave and Diamond Head Road in Kahala.  We will be using meeting space of The Arc in Hawaii.  Parking is plentiful.  As with all Slow Food O’ahu events, please bring your own eating utensils and BYOB.  The Annual Meeting is free but please register so that we have an accurate count of attendees.  Please sign up at bit.ly/sfoevents.
