This month there will be 2 speakers at our June meeting of COGS Members.  They are :

  • Shaoying Wang who was born and bred in rural China. With her love for rural communities and their traditional organic way of living, Shaoying would like to share with us some of the wonderful things in rural China, such as food use, food growing and cooking, wild plants used for food and/or medicine, folk arts (expression of love for nature) and the farmers’ market.   Do you know that there are 24 growing seasons in rural China’s calendar? Shaoying will also bring some herbal teas and traditional dumplings for us to try.  Shaoying  is taking a small group to visit rural China to meet the farmers this September and she will also give us some information about this tour.
  • Community sector worker Heidi Zajac came up with the idea of the Cooking Circles where groups of women and girls gather to cook, learn from each other and then share a meal. The project was born out of Heidi’s experiences in East Timor, cooking with local women in their homes.  Cooking Circles’ vision is to build a socially connected community for women and girls with the aim of reducing social isolation and help them form supportive networks and communities through cooking and food.  There’s more information on Cooking Circles at cookingcircles.org

It should be an interesting and informative afternoon and COGS welcomes all members and their friends to come along.
