Community orchard planning committee meetings planned for final days of 2014

The community orchard team continues to have a busy schedule headed into January.  In the last project update, we shared that the orchard team has formed four sub-groups focused on 1) design, 2) neighborhood involvement and communications, 3) training and job skills, and 4) food security.  A fifth group has since formed to focus on grants.

Now, those groups are starting to meet independently to work on their tasks before the whole team comes together again on January 19, 2015.  Here is the complete schedule of meetings planned on the community orchard for the next few weeks:

  • Monday, 12/29, 6 PM:  Grant team meets at Café Diem, 2005 South Ankeny Boulevard, Ankeny, IA 50023.
  • Tuesday, 12/30, 5:30 PM:  Training/education team meets at Raccoon River Brewing Company, 200 10th Street, Des Moines, IA 50309
  • Tuesday 12/30, 7:00 PM:  Design team meets, also at Raccoon River Brewing Company.

The next whole team meeting is January 19 at 6PM at St. Vincent de Paul, 1426 6th Avenue, on the second floor.
