Fantastic Farmers Market Finds – For Blackbaud Grantmaking™
This past weekend, I went to a market about an hour away and think I may have found a new favorite. The vendor, let’s call her Wendy, not only had a great selection of vegetables, but also had a fun story. She didn’t start gardening until she retired and in the past few years has turned her 2-acre suburban property into a garden paradise. How do I know? She had photos of the area of her garden where each vegetable grew. It’s a small thing, but not a thing you’ll get from a supermarket. I actually knew the piece of soil each of my selections came from.
Wendy also had a section of her booth that grouped different vegetables together for specific meals. Above each grouping, she wrote recommendations like:
- Great for stews!
- Fantastic with steaks!
- Use for a (Non) Sufferin’ Succotash! … my personal favorite
Setting up Classifications is one of the many hats a Grantmaking system administrator needs to be able to wear to get the most out of their database.
Quick tip: Rather than deleting a Classification value, deactivate it to preserve historical content.
