Braving the rain and cold in St. Louis this past weekend was more than worth it. Not only did my students have a great time at the Fall National Journalism Convention and take third place in Best of Show for their website, Kerri and I did our first live television interview at an affiliate station of the Canadian Broadcast Corporation (CBC). We were on a show with Nancy Wilson, who asked questions relating to the project and the economics of eating well. Once we get video footage we’ll post it here.
Afterwards we started hearing from people all over Canada about (aboot) the project. Guy Alaimo, who is an Applied Communication student at Camosun College in British Columbia, did an interview with me for their college radio station The Village 900. You can listen to the interview here.
As a result of these two interviews, we have received a few more donations, and as such have decided to wait until the end of November before handing the check over to the Community Resource Center.
In addition to the media stuff we’ve been doing, we have also figured out how this project will continue and will keep you posted as we get moving. For now, enjoy the interview!
