Hey Robin! I seemed to be having trouble responding to your question. I don't know if you got four replies from me or if it never went through. Anyway, I think I'm going to skip yoga tomorrow and get to the art-meetup on time. So I could show you and Andy the facility before the meeting...there is more to see, particularly in the back area, during the day. And that would save you hanging out in the hood after dark. Thanks!
Hi Robin. Thanks for jumping in and helping last night. I couldn't have done it without you.
It was nice meeting your folks. You're dad's a charming character. Does he make those little cheesecakes at Cupps?
Hi Robin, sorry - I emailed the food committee group but didn't post anything here. Now I just left a comment somewhere (can you tell I'm new to this?) but I don't see it anywhere AND I left the wrong information! If you got an email from me, please disregard it. The food committee meeting is TOMORROW, Jan 8th at 7pm at the Starbucks in the Park Towne Village, across from Park Road Shopping center. It is near the corner of Woodlawn and Park Road. The address is: 1630 Woodlawn Ave., 28209. Hope to see you there!
Our Edible Schoolyard group is fairly new and still learning the ropes. We have not yet thought about home schools, we are mainly focused on public schools to start. We figured they need the assistance with it whereas a private or home school could complete the project on their own. Do you know of an outlet we could use to connect with people who are home schooling?
Hi Robin. I would like to join the 11/13 mtg but will be out of town. I'm doing a lot of research on the new federal local school wellness policy which began in 2006. This policy requires schools to address nutition education, physical activity and school based learning experiences that promote student wellness. It sounds good because this new policy would support the edible schoolyard but not all districts have the policy in place. Even if they do they might not have written the edible schoolyard into their local policy. But at least we have a starting point to begin a discussion. Let me know if you want to discuss it in more detail. You asked for other websites here are some of my favorites:
She took pretty well to the diet. She was different that most kids with autism. She'd eat anything with a few sensitivites to sticky foods. So, she initially ate very well. Now, she's a little bit pickier as she gets better. Makes sense to me. :-) She tells me she doesn't like having "food allergies" but otherwise she does very well!
Hi there. Where do you teach?
The diet (along w/vitamins & mineral supplements) has been the reason for her recovery from autism. She's now in Kindergarden, mainstreamed and indistinguishable. She's doing great. The diet she is on is called SCD (Simple Carb diet) as well as dairy free. It's similar to caveman diet. (We've been doing biomedical intervention for about15 months now.) She cannot have dairy, sugars or starches. So she mostly eats fruits, veggies, meat & nuts. We also use Organic or natural local food as much as possible. Therapy has helped her but in my experience using diet, etc..to help them feel better they will be more receptive to therapy. When you don't feel well, do you want to work?? There's a gut-brain relationship. Feel free to contact me anytime.
