Please join us for UofL's Sustainability Roundtable on alternate Fridays throughout the fall at 11am.

On September 27th, our speaker will be Lilias Pettit-Scott, from the Urban Agriculture Coalition. One of Lilias' passions is season-extension and year-round growing. She'll share some of the latest about using high tunnels for producing food in both urban and rural settings.

Upcoming Fall Roundtables include:
Oct. 11 – Allison Smith, Metro Louisville - Brownfields
Oct. 25 – TBA

The format is a 30-40 minute presentation from a variety of speakers throughout the year, followed by 20-30 minute open discussion. Please feel free to bring your lunch! Anyone with an interest in sustainability can give talks at the speaker series and participate in the audience, including faculty, staff, students, practitioners, teachers, government officials, and members of the public.
