studies student, was introduced as a new member of CEAG.

communicate STARS meeting times, for example by using “meeting maker.”(I don’t
recall what we decided.) Julie suggested scheduling every Wednesday on weeks
without CAEG meetings through the end of the quarter.
- Alicia agreed to invite Erin
Cooke, the environmental coordinator for Cupertino, to our CEAG meetings.

scope of effort that could be performed by Master Gardeners.
