For many people, May is a month of transition. Universities are winding down the semester, students are graduating with excitement about their next steps and future, K-12 students and their families are engaged in a busy month of activities and celebrations before transitioning to summer schedules, and spring is turning into summer with all the changes that seasonal shifts bring. I am personally excited about my garden coming to life in the coming weeks and more opportunities to be outside in the warm sun. (Although it’s snowing as I write this; oh, Colorado…)
For Together We Grow, this is a season of change and transition as well. We are continuing to work with our team (consultants, Strategic Planning Committee, TWG staff) to define the strategies, goals, and objectives for the organization. The summer will be a busy time for this work, and we look forward to communicating our path forward in the coming months, including where intentional partnership in this work is needed. Thanks to each of you who have participated in our stakeholder engagement process through surveys, focus groups, or 1:1 conversations — this data is critical to our understanding of our future direction! If you haven’t participated and would like to, please check out the strategic planning survey link in this newsletter. Ten minutes of your time can make a difference on TWG’s impact in the U.S. agriculture and food sector.
