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).

We continue our series on January 30th with Kristin Faurest, Ph.D., a nationally-recognized public garden professional whose career has included time at Portland Japanese Garden and Kew Gardens. She has worked for River Heritage Conservancy on its Origin Park project since 2022.

Please join us to be in dialogue with Kristin about Origin Park, a new 430-acre park under development in Clarksville on a site including damaged agricultural lands and brownfields.

She'll discuss the site's fascinating history, its context within the metropolitan area, and how it will transform ecology and quality of life for the area when completed.

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.
