This event is to promote sustainable, healthy, and just agricultural practices. We will be hosting the event in our garden, just a block and a half away from our office in the Allied Health Building at the corner of Compton and Rutger. Parking is free in the Hickory East Garage!
The event will kick off with a speech from our awesome keynote speaker, TBA. We will start this at 11 am on the bleachers at the SLU track across the street from the garden. Then, we will all cross the street to the garden where the stations and food will be presented. For the stations, we will have a variety of experts such as agencies that work with these topics to teach of their individual disciplines.
Along with having stations teaching ways to get involved, we will also be serving an artisanal lunch (menu below) for the mere price of $5.
