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

On Feb. 28th, our speaker will be Lilias Pettit-Scott, Urban Agriculture Conservationist at Jefferson County Soil and Water Conservation District and member of 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.

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.

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