Please join us for UofL's Sustainability Roundtable series on alternating Fridays at 11am!

Our speaker on March 30th will be Amanda Fuller, an urban farming pioneer and entrepreneur who was the first to request land from Louisville's Land Bank Authority for agricultural purposes. In 2013, she was successful in purchasing 5 contiguous vacant lots in the Portland neighborhood and established Lots of Food. She'll be sharing her story with us and discussing Urban Farming and Orchards on Vacant Lots.

The format is a 30-40 minute presentation from a variety of speakers, 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.

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