Garden Gathering

Join the UofL Sustainability Council for our Spring Sustainability Roundtable series on alternate Tuesdays from 4:00-4:50pm (1/16, 1/30, 2/13, 2/27, 3/19, 4/2, 4/16, 4/23).

We conclude our spring series on April 23rd with a presentation by Morgan Early, a UofL Sustainability Masters student, presenting on Community Gardens: Finding Common Ground in Food Insecurity.

Join us for a comprehensive overview of community gardens, including the history of the movement, the benefits, the drawbacks, and the obstacles that these spaces face. This includes a case study of UofL's Garden Commons, the unique qualities that help this garden thrive, and visions of potential garden expansions.

The format is a 30-40 minute presentation from a variety of speakers throughout the year, followed by 15-20 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.
