How Green Was My Garden: Gardening, Social Media & Bacon go to the Fair

Social Media Breakfast MSP 26 is being hosted at the Minnesota State Fair Progress Building on Friday May 21st from 8am to 10am discussing Urban/Organic/ Gardening & Farming.  Your venerable  blogger (yes me) will be trying not to embarass herself as the moderator of a very good panel of guests assembled to discuss how they use social media to promote their businesses, sell their products and connect with their communities.

Panelists include:

* Susan Berkson, Minneapolis Farmers Market (MPLS Farmers Market on Facebook)
* Debbie Morrison, Sapsucker Farms
* Barbara Hegman, PlantJotter
* Lee Zukor, Simple Good & Tasty
* Kirsten Saylor, Gardening Matters

Generous sponsors include Organic Valley and Mother Earth Gardens. At the event will be a mini-market with several vendors and organizations displaying their messages and wares. Please stop by for some bacon and lively discussion of how farmers, growers, advocates, markets and more are using social media in the vibrant world of sustainable growing.

Minnesota State Fair Fashion: Backwards White Hats

Walking through the Mn State Fair midway last night, I discovered an alarming trend. I found hundreds of young men wearing backwards hats. I counted 84 in this one area alone. Here is some shaky video I took to document the event.


Unfortunately, it’s hard to make out all the hats in the crowd, but they’re there. What State Fair Fashions 2008 have you noticed?
