Features: Farm to School Grant Program, National Urban Extension Conference call for proposals, Suburban Housing Affordability White Paper, Natura Resources
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! This year, I’m thankful for science, community, family, and a 4-legged friend that is always ready (demands?) a morning walk.
It’s the dog, along with copious amounts of coffee that wake me up each day. But, It’s the exciting work I get to do with my urban Extension colleagues that makes me want to get up on these dark, gloomy winter mornings. So, thank you for the connections and professional inspiration!
We have some great stuff linked below, including an announcement about the Farm to School Grant Program, a call for proposals for the National Urban Extension Conference, a sound-bite worthy read on Suburban Housing Affordability from WCMER, and a link to the always interesting Natura community site. If you haven’t checked out Natura, hop on it! Natura hosts unique topic-based professional working groups, international research exchange programs, and more.
If you’re feeling social consider following the Western Center for Metropolitan Extension and Research on Twitter @westernmetro along with the Metro Center @wsumetrocenter and we’ll try to keep you intrigued!
I’ll look forward to continuing to stay in touch as 2021 wraps up.
P.S.: We had some trouble with our server sending this out in November prior to the holiday, so resending again. Apologies if you/re one of a couple of people receiving this twice.
