Join us TOMORROW, March 14th, 2012 at 1pm for a tree planting. Interested volunteers will meet at our Nature Pavilion, across Gemini Blvd. from the Arboretum, and walk with staff through the trails to the edge of campus to assist in the planting of 100 pine trees. Volunteer hours can be signed off and you will get to enjoy the spring by helping to restore this piece of campus. No RSVP necessary, just come out at 1pm.
Our environment shapes our behaviors and, perhaps more so, our behaviors shape our environment. The human race has had an incredible impact on the global environment. This detrimental impact gave rise to an emergent ideal, sustainability. Sustainability is the capacity to endure. In order to endure we must find equilibrium between a progressive, technological world and a world dictated by ancient, natural laws. Essentially, we must provide food and energy for a massive population without depleting the earth’s finite resources. The task is a daunting one, and you may find yourself asking, how can I make a difference? That is why we decided to put onthis free workshop series to help you understand where you, as an individual, can promote food, energy and waste sustainability. It doesn’t have to be a long uphill battle; we’re convinced you can make a substantial difference at your convenience. So come join us for the first series of our workshop on March 21st at 1 pm for the freeEnvironment and Behavior Workshop: Food Sustainability and learn how you can be a part of this vital movement!
Activities will include a brief introductory clip, break out discussions, a walk-through of the community garden and a cooking demo.
All attendees must RSVP to email@example.com no later than March 19th
Tea, water and a small snack will be provided
We do politely request no children under the age of 12
