Hello from GGB! This is Jacobi Simmons, the "new guy" or GGB's newest Youth Executive Team member and social media intern. I wanted to share a few updates on what we have all been up to at GGB this past month.
Early in March we started our garden planning (in winter coats) but we just couldn't wait any longer for spring! We also said goodbye to some fantastic volunteers from St. Kates Service Learning BSN-RN program. Two weeks ago we had a blast from the past with three past mentors visiting us from CA, MS, and WA over their spring break.
Our baking crew did a lot of experimenting this past month and came up with some great new recipes we might be adding soon - Jalapeno Chocolate Chip Cookies, Sweet Potato East African Donuts, and we are also experimenting with hard candy and chocolate infused with garden herbs.
Last week we were invited to give out samples at the MN Cup Launch Party. We met so many amazing entrepreneurs and left with a great new network. The same night our GGB Adult Advisory Board met for the first time. We are so grateful for all our new mentors!
This past Sunday we held a pop-up sale at the Wedge Co-op and we had a great success! Our next sale will be April 8th, 11-2pm at Herbivorous Butcher at 507 1st Ave NE Minneapolis, MN. We sold there on March 4th and SOLD OUT early! Please be sure to come and pay us a visit a week from Saturday.
This weekend our Youth Executive Team will be doing a Spring Break Leadership Retreat! Wewill conduct Team-building activities, create multiple GGB commercials, test their company knowledge with a game of Jeopardy, and plan some Random Act of Kindness Events around the community.
GGB also has an Amazon Wish-List if you're feeling generous and would love to help out the link to our wishlist is linked to the button below. If you have any of the items at home we would be happy to take slightly used donations as well.
Thanks everyone for all the love support and hope to serve you in the future!
