This morning, we invited members of the local and regional press to join us up on the Green Roof to hear the details of the Amplification Project firsthand. While today’s event was for many their first time visiting Tellus360, there were certainly some familiar faces in the crowd (looking at you, Bill from Fox43, Jason from Wood Stove House and Yoder from Fly Magazine….). Each were given a press pack on a wooden USB drive loaded with press releases, background info and photos.

We kicked things off at 11am with Joe giving a quick background on Tellus360. Mairtin followed up and gave a rundown on where we are going: live music, theater, workshops, community events, art exhibitions, organic food – the whole 9… The group then embarked on a tour of the building where they saw room by room the transformations that construction will bring (check out this neat photo that FIG Magazine posted on their Instagram account).

Finally, we wrapped up with a delicious lunch catered by Hilary and Ben from The Scarlet Runner. From fresh-picked greens from Ben’s garden in Strasburg (picked this morning!) to locally sourced meats to a brilliant vegan sandwich, we got a preview of the organic, locally sourced menu that The Scarlet Runner will be serving at Tellus360 once we are up and running.

All in all, it was a great day, and a wonderful opportunity to meet and develop relationships with our local media. Stay tuned for more info!
