Harvest Festival celebrated Culinary Arts Garden
Thanks to all individuals and sponsors who helped make the 2021 Harvest Festival a success.
The event billed as “Fertilize the Garden. Nourish the Community,” was an internal SFCC community event due to COVID safety concerns. The event did, however, offer students, staff and faculty the opportunity to learn more about club activities, tour SFCC’s art studios and tour Controlled Environment Agriculture’s greenhouse to learn about hydroponics and aquaponics.
Even if you were unable to attend the Harvest Festival, please consider a donation to support the Culinary Arts Garden via SFCC Foundation by visiting: https://www.sfcc.edu/sfcc-foundation-culinary-arts-garden-giving-page/. Your donation will give the culinary arts garden the financial support it needs to thrive.
Thanks to the event planners:
Ondine Frauenglass, Interim Director- Innovation Center
Julia Deisler, Dean- TAST, Business, Professional Studies, and Education
Micaela Deaton, Culinary Arts Faculty and East Wing Eatery Manager
Linda Cassel, Director- Arts on Campus

News and Announcements
Today is Indigenous Peoples Day
Today, SFCC recognizes and honors the significance of Indigenous Peoples Day. In April 2019, Gov. Lujan Grisham established in law that the second Monday in October shall be celebrated as Indigenous Peoples’ Day, an official state holiday.
Last year the governor stated, “Indigenous Peoples Day is an important opportunity to honor the culture and traditions of New Mexico’s first citizens, our tribal brothers and sisters who make up such an important part of our state’s beautiful multicultural identity. Tribal nations and their peoples have made incredible and unique contributions to not only our state but this country we all love. This year, the tribal nations of New Mexico have suffered and persevered amid the pandemic and economic crisis, showing incredible resilience and strength in the face of challenging circumstances, demonstrating that we are all stronger when we look out for each other together. The state of New Mexico has not hesitated – and will never hesitate – to help protect and provide for the sovereign nations within our borders.”
The City of Santa Fe passed a resolution in 2016 to observe Indigenous Peoples Day.
Also, s.j. Miller, Ph.D., shared this resource: Indigenous_Peoples_Day_Toolkit_FINAL_PAGES. The document includes an interview with N.M. Representative Derrick Lente (Pueblos of Isleta & Sandia) about his work to get the day recognized in N.M.

CHESS selects Workday to transform student experience, operations
From the August 26 press release: Many students face an uphill battle when considering or attending college. From figuring out registration, placement and advising to managing course scheduling, degree completion and transfer, colleges have not made it easy. The Collaborative for Higher Education Shared Services, or CHESS, has a vision to transform the student experience and modernize operations. For the first time in our nation, five independent community colleges have voluntarily come together to launch an Enterprise Resource Planning platform (ERP) capitalizing on the power of shared resources and decision-making.
CHESS has selected Workday, Inc. to provide solutions that will help realize the group’s vision. Workday’s suite of applications, which includes financial management, human capital management, and student services, will assist CHESS colleges to quickly respond to change while critical business operations continue to run smoothly and securely. The enterprise technology solution is strategically designed so that students can use an intuitive system that restructures outdated administrative functions. Choosing Workday is a major step forward in making this innovative dream a reality. Implementation will begin this fall. CHESS is structured so that additional colleges from any U.S. location have the ability to join and take advantage of increased opportunities for students, shared resources, and improved administrative efficiencies
