April 30th, 1st Day of Work!

Today was our first day up in the Office of Research at the University of Guelph. Geoff, Harriet and I all got to know each other a little better and met some of the SPARK writers as well. Kim gave us a quick tour of the office, where the supplies are kept and where people sit. Then we headed for the library to do some research on the Agricultural Adaptation Council, to find out where our funding came from and why we received it. We also had a look around for other Ag Communications Education Centres and similar programs. We had a bite to eat then headed back to the Office of Research where Lilian and Owen gave us a better overall idea about the project and some ideas on where to go with it. Our last task for the day was setting up this Blog as well as a facebook group to get some feedback from other students on what they think of creating an Agricultural Communications Education Centre. The facebook group is called Agricultural Communications Education Centre Study so pleasejoin! We look forward to hearing anyone's ideas feel free to post comments!!
