SEWMGV Upcoming Events

Mandatory Child Protection Training
With the implementation of Executive Order 54 – mandatory reporting of child abuse and neglect – all UWEX staff and volunteers are required to complete mandatory reporter online training. All Master Gardeners are required to complete this training. Even though some people may not volunteer with youth, they have the potential to interact with youth.  No exceptions. At the end of the training there is an option to print a certificate of completion. This should be printed and turned in to the local county UWEX office to keep on file. This must be done by the time hours are turned in next fall, and the counties will include the information on completion in the report submitted to the state Program Office.

Go to Link for Abuse Training for All MGVs  to get started. It should take 30-60 minutes to complete the core of the training, with options to access additional useful information that will add to the training time. This training can be counted as 1 hour (60 minutes) of continuing education.

SEWMG Educational Program Topic — Innovations for a Healthy Food System
Saturday November 15, 2014 10:00am to 11:30am
Speaker Alex Tyink Program Leader at Goodwill Grows of North Central Wisconsin
Alex Tyink began his work in Brooklyn, NY by building community gardens and farms for social service providers throughout New York City. Now known as the Head of Lettuce, he has grown the Goodwill Grows program to include 8 community gardens, 2 community farms, a food business incubation program, a farm to school program and numerous partnerships with organizations participating in indoor farming programs. His company, Fork Farms, holds the patent on the Indoor Farming System, a modular plant growth apparatus capable of producing an impactful volume of fresh food year-round, consistently and sustainably. In his presentation Alex will address how Goodwill Grows develops socially innovative models to build community and create a positive food culture. He will discuss each of its programs individually and how they work collaboratively with each other and other organizations to create collective impacts that make a difference. Participants in his presentations walk away with new ideas for developing local food systems and engaging community in the emotional experience of eating food that was grown with your own hands. Goodwill Grows is a program of Goodwill Industries of North Central Wisconsin, Inc.
