Meeting Notes:

Regenerate conference - Amber can go but Our Sci can’t pay for all of it. Other org’s that want to contribute? Please reach out to Amber by EOD.

CAFF Small Farms Demo - Juliet and Paul are going, they have materials from many different org’s at this point. There will be a GOAT table that will be able to hand out those tools. They are meeting with a few groups (like Our Sci) to learn more about they can rep different org/products.

GOAT Box - where has it been? We walked through the spreadsheet and updated where the GOAT box has actually been. Ankita will be sending it to Juliet next for the CAFF small farms demo. Going forward, anyone who gets the box would update the inventory as well. We need more stickers - a good vendor is sticker mule, Juliet will order these for the CAFF conference. If org’s can send flyers to Ankita, then she is happy to distribute them. Amber can work on getting Our Sci and OFN flyers sent to Ankita, Paul will work on farmOS. Send flyers to:

Ankita Raturi
225 S University Street
West Lafayette, Indiana


GOAT Community Organizer Job Description - Worked in this doc. Referenced the budget from the last call.

Ankita will work on the application process and it will likely be a discussion with candidates during a GOAT call and a community survey.
