ECONET Induction Stove Campaign in Utah

RE: Induction Stove Campaign in Utah

My daughter, Victoria, and I are working on promoting the electrification of kitchens. We published the attached article, “Now we’re cooking with electromagnetism: Making induction stoves cool,” where we address the current “culture wars” over gas stoves by blending foodie culture with marketing perspectives to provide a preliminary blueprint on how to make induction stoves a desirable “cool” alternative to gas.

(online link to full article)

We’re now working with Utah Clean Energy, setting the groundwork for a potential outreach campaign to promote induction stoves in Utah, and we’re seeking Utah-based chefs and cooks who use induction and who may be willing to attest to the technology’s effectiveness over gas and possibly serve as spokespersons as the campaign gets underway in the media.

Please contact me at ed.stafford@usu.edu for any contacts or if you’d like more information.

Thanks!

Ute Ladies’ Tresses (ULT) monitoring, Fridays 6 p.m. July 28th to early September

Cache Valley friends, Bear River Land Conservancy is seeking community volunteers of all ages that want to help us conduct our annual monitoring of Ute Ladies’ Tresses.

Monitoring events will occur on Friday evenings beginning July 28th through early September. Each Friday, we will meet at 6 p.m. at ~5400 W, 1800 S in Mendon. Please wear long sleeve shirts, pants, and sturdy shoes.

Ute Ladies’ Tresses are a threatened perennial flowering orchid found in open wetland and riparian micro-habitats, are mostly pollinated by bumblebees, and are dependent on mycorrhizal fungi. As part of our efforts to manage Mendon Meadows Preserve and to protect this rare orchid, Bear River Land Conservancy conducts annual monitoring and established a pollinator garden in 2022.
