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

On March 19th, we will be in conversation with Lisa Dettlinger, the Program Director at Louisville Grows, about their activities and programs.

Louisville Grows is an environmental, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to Grow Greener, Healthier Neighborhoods. Their vision is to foster green, just and sustainable neighborhoods in Louisville. They seek to be a leading nonprofit in advocating for health equity through the environmental platforms of urban forestry and urban agriculture. Louisville Grows’ neighborhood-based urban forestry program focuses on rebuilding the urban tree canopy with a goal of planting 1000 trees each year. Their Urban Agriculture program is designed to build capacity in community gardens by providing technical assistance, education and infrastructure. Healthy House programs, workshops and classes center on healthy living, healthy eating, environmental education or environmental equity. They are dedicated to restoring the urban tree canopy and providing environmental education opportunities that will lead to ending health disparities in our community.

No pre-registration is required. The format is a 30-40 minute presentation from a variety of speakers throughout the year, followed by 20-30 minutes of open discussion.

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. If you would like to give a presentation, or would like to hear a particular speaker, please contact Tamara Sluss.
