Stacey, Lee, Sheila & Bill at 2006 Fall BRAG

A big Thanks goes out to our friends at BRAG for their continued support and to Sheila Crowley and Stacey Johnson who helped Lee and Bill serve up Café Campesino and talk Fair Trade at this year’s Fall BRAG BikeFest in Newnan, Georgia. Unlike last year, when our BRAG crew had to weather constant rain, this year’s crew lucked out, enjoying perfect coffee-drinking temperatures and crystal-clear blue skies.

From Thursday, October 12th through Saturday, October 14th, Tripp and Bill will be at our friend’s Larry’s Beans in Raleigh, North Carolina, for Cooperative Coffees’ Annual Meeting. This annual event will bring together the coop’s now 21 members to discuss business, hear from four of our producer partners and plan for the future.

During the weekend of October 14th -15th, Sheila Crowley and Marysol Pomeroy will be serving up lots o’ Café Campesino java at this year’s Green Festival at the Washington D.C. Convention Center, 801 Mount Vernon Place, NW. Look for them at booth 11 in the Green Festival’s food court on Saturday from 10AM to 8PM and Sunday from 11AM to 6PM.

And on Sunday, October 15th, while Sheila and Marysol are serving up Café Campesino, Tripp and his compadre Ethan Fogleman of Larry’s Beans will also be at the DC Green Festival, leading three workshops on behalf of Cooperative Coffees in the Festival’s Fair Trade Pavilion. Joining Tripp and Ethan will be our good friend and fellow Fair Trader Michael Sheridan of the CRS Fair Trade Coffee program, of which Café Campesino and Larry’s Beans are active participants.

From Friday, October 20th through the 22nd, Tripp and Stacey will be serving up Café Campesino at the 2nd annual BIONEERS Southeast Leadership Forum at Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Georgia. This gathering of local artists, policy makers, business people, designers, educators, healers, activists, farmers, and many others is a dynamic, interactive forum addressing solutions to relevant local and regional challenges. Engaging speakers and insightful workshops create a connecting atmosphere supported by our region’s most forward thinking organizations and businesses.
