4 Tucson Facebook pages: the food editionby Carli Brosseau on Feb. 02, 2012, under Facebook
This is the second in my irregular series on Facebook pages maintained by Tucsonans.
It’s a project intended as an “indie twist on the Food Network.” The idea — spearheaded by Jamie Laboz and Cristina Williams of The Modeens — is that bands play live and share their favorite recipes. The Cleavers, The Cordials and Aaron Gilmartin have been featured so far, with only one episode and one “snack” posted. The videos are fun to watch and well edited, and it seems like there’s a lot to work with in the Tucson music/food scene. I look forward to more. You can watch the videos on Facebook or on their YouTube channel.
The couple behind Powhaus Productions — Jared McKinley and Nadine Roselle — are now at work on a plant-focused blog, a blog for “plant-freaks.” The subtitle is a pretty clear indication of the tone. I’ve found the posts thoughtful and thought-provoking, among them this one about the potential of dog poo in compost (really!). They, and I, also love video.
A super cool convergence of old and new technology: card catalog drawers filled with paper envelopes of seeds, an exchange, an electronic publicity push. On the Facebook page, you can get seed-related literary quotes, photos of seeds entering their drawers and seeds sprouting in soil, and updates of the library system’s gardening-related events. The library branches are also active on Twitter.
