Haps from rogueApron

Hey all …

We know many of you are as passionate about supporting good food for Georgia as we are. So here are two opportunities coming up for ya … plus a sneek peek bout the next dinner.

FRIDAY MAY 1. Atlanta Local Food Initiative (ALFI) conference & mixer

After a day-long conference/conversation over at St. Philips Cathedral, lots of movers and shakers in the local food movement will convene at Food 101.

If you’d like to get involved in local food change, join us at Food 101 in the Highlands for patio drinks and food-forward conversation.

So, all you home gardeners out there have been sweating the recent cold snaps … but what happens this summer, when you’re deluged with tomatoes and cukes? (Besides of course bringing them to a rogueApron dinner … )

veggieTrader.com, a two-week old site out of San Fran, aims to connect home gardeners with folks looking to swap or sell their excess. Right now the site is bare of Atlantans, but that’s sure to change as word gets out. Let us know if you sign up!

Check out a sample posting of Floridian homegrown lettuce. Yums.


Thanks to Lissa Smith for the tip!

Sticks & Stones Details

next event!

Hey guys!

Sticks and Stones is NEXT week – Saturday the 18th. We had a chance to visit Collins at Harvest Farms today, putting together the details of the event. This is gonna be a lot of fun … we have some teamwork, games, and rad headgear planned for you guys … plus helping kickstart a local organic farm that (really) needs our help.

We’ll send out the link for confirmation early next week – here’s a quick note with some reminders:

• COMMUNAL PICNIC CLOTH: Have an old sheet or blanket? Or a few? Please bring it to contribute to our communal picnic area. Our volunteers will set up a lovely dining area with your contribution – either take it home at the end of the day, or leave it for future rA picnics.

• TREAT CONTEST: If your hands are itching to cook, enter our treat contest. Bring a treat to share … winner takes home a rogueApron tshirt.

• REUSABLE CUPS & PLATES: In order to cut down on waste, please bring your own cup & plate for beer & picnic. Yay green!

• NEED TO SWITCH SHIFTS? A few of you guys emailed about this … yes, it’s absolutely no problem at all if you’d like to switch from AM to PM or vice versa. We’ll send out the confirmation form early next week; just confirm appropriately.

• WANT TO VOLUNTEER FOR SETUP OR KITCHEN PREP? We can always use a few extra hands, so email ladyrogueATL@gmail.com if you’d like to join the prep party (Friday, 17th) or help setup the day of (18th).

Lady Rogue Business Network: First Workshop

first LRBN workshop!

So, most of you guys know that we created a spin-off entity, the Lady Rogue Business Network, in order to better connect all the great DIY entrepreneurs we were meeting and partnering with at events. Hey, Atlanta’s cool like that.

Our little network of rad folks is over 100 folks strong at the moment (hooray nonsucky networking). Members have asked us to start putting together workshops – on subjects as varied as social media, photography, and business licenses. Heck, we gotta support each other in rough times, right?

So, announcing our very first workshop7pm at ParkGrounds Coffee [map] in Reynoldstown. (What can we say, we love that joint, and we want to support it as much as possible!). Join us on April 8th for a lil learning, a lil networking, and … oh heck … maybe a slug of Irish Cream Whiskey in your coffee. (You know how we roll.) $10 donation – more if you feel it was worth more. Lead by the infamously web-nerdy Lady Rogue. Erm, me.


Hope to see you out!

p.s. If you haven’t checked out our business network yet, do so now! These folks are super nice and rogueApron approved!
