Bringing Fruit Trees to New Haven's Edgewood Park...and beyond

As you probably all now by now, I am currently heavily involved in Friends of Edgewood Park's quest for a Fruit Orchard from www.communitiestakeroot.com sponsored by Edy’s Ice Cream and Fruit Bars.  

This is not only a project for me, but a passion.  I grew up with a garden, and as soon as I got my first apartment immediately started planting herbs and chili peppers in pots.  I still plant my garden in the same row structure that my father did.  Tomatoes (San Marzano, Big Boys, Cherry), Lettuces (thats plural), Peppers (3 kinds), Eggplant, Zuchinni, Beans, Peas, strawberries on a hill in the back.

Its a passion for Friends of Edgewood Park as well, led by President Semi Semi-Dikoko as you can read here in the New Haven Register article.  And it looks like the rest of New Haven is catching the fever!

If you want to join in the fun and VOTE Edgewood Park (and the rest of New Haven) to be a #fruithvn, here’s how to do it:

About:

Sixteen years in full-service marketing agency life, an adventurous spirit and the love of stories brought me SheSoSocial, LLC. Basically, I provide an online voice for Small Businesses and Non-Profit Organizations. Putting the Social in Social Media for a variety of clients as consultant and/or blogger, cultivating relationships for Claire’s Corner Copia, Fairhaven Furniture, Temple Physical Therapy, Mark A. Healey and Connecticut Orthopaedic Specialists, my job is to bring and retain customers. Coming from a background in marketing -- from research to strategic implementation, the growth of social media is fascinating to me because it is a conversation changer, LITERALLY.

As of part of the team for Social Web CT and Social Web Week 2011, I get to share my passion of both teaching and learning with everyone from novices to experts in the social media field for business and community.

When not conversing on Twitter (@shesosocial), LinkedIn and Facebook, I can be found playing with my five boys (husband, sons, cats), gardening, dancing and entertaining family and friends with fun and food.
