UUWF 04.18The Farm to Table Movement: It takes a community!

Learn how Farm to Table promotes locally based agriculture through education, community outreach and networking. Pam Roy will discuss how the organization enhances marketing opportunities for farmers; encourages family farming, farmers’ markets, farm to school, and the preservation of agricultural traditions; informs public policy by community and advocacy organizing; and, furthers understanding of the links between farming, food, health and local economies.  She will share the importance of engaging voices for change through local and state policy and advocacy work. 
Pam Roy, our speaker, is Executive Director of Farm to Table, a New Mexico non-profit organization working on regional food and farming issues including community capacity building focused on affordable and nutritious food access; Farm to School linking schools to local farmers for fresh produce and pairing up with education programs; and food and agriculture policy and advocacy. She has over 25 years of organizational development experience for farmers’ markets, direct market opportunities, and rural food retail initiatives both domestically and internationally. Pam serves as the  Coordinator of the Santa Fe Food Policy Council and the New Mexico Food and Agriculture Policy Council, is New Mexico’s Government Relations Director for the Rocky Mountain Farmers Union, serves on the New Mexico Farming and Ranching  Resilience Task Force, the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition, and is a founding member of the National Farm to School Network.  She has received numerous awards for her work.

Santa Fe Unitarian Universalist Women’s Federation

The Santa Fe Unitarian Universalist Women’s Federation (UUWF) is affiliated with the national UUWF organization that advances justice for women and promotes their spiritual growth. UUWF is an independent non-profit, 501 (c) (3) associate member organization of the Unitarian Universalist Association. The Santa Fe chapter is a part of this national organization and an affiliate organization of the Unitarian Universalist Santa Fe (UUSF).

Our UUWF in Santa Fe is one of the largest and most active groups in the country. Six of our members have received the Clara Barton award from UUWF national. We have over 60 members, with many others being on our mailing list. Members do not have to be members of UU Santa Fe. UUWF membership is $25 a year, paid in the fall.

We have nine luncheons each year – one a month from September through May on the third Saturday. We have a weekend retreat in early June. Also, we have recently enjoyed two organized trips – one to Ajijic Mexico and another to the Bosque del Apache in Socorro.

We pride ourselves on being THE PLACE to get to know other women if you are new to UU Santa Fe or to the city of Santa Fe. Our informal and friendly luncheons are preceded by a social time. Members volunteer during the year to help with one luncheon. Each luncheon has a program given by an interesting Santa Fean, including some of our own members. The luncheon cost is $8 for members and $10 for nonmembers.

The proceeds from the luncheons, and the majority of the money from dues, are distributed in the spring to local charities that benefit women and children in the Santa Fe area.
