Year-long Green Bag luncheon series to address current sustainability topics

Posted in NEWS on Thursday, September 1st, 2011

Starting in September, the Sustainability and Environmental Management Office (SEMO) and the American Studies Sustainability Project are sponsoring a Green Bag luncheon series that focuses on the environment and sustainability, both at work and at home. This educational series features informal lunchtime discussions and workshops – from sustainable food and dining choices to backyard composting to utility savings at home and work and much more. So bring your lunch and join us to learn interesting ways to incorporate sustainability into your life!

At each single session, attendees will be entered into a drawing to receive one small giveaway relevant to that session’s topic. At the end of the series, individuals who have attended three or more sessions throughout the year will be entered in a drawing to receive one of two larger giveaways!

All lectures/workshops are free and open to Vanderbilt community members. Videos of all sessions will be posted on the SustainVU website.

September Workshop: Cooking with Sustainable and Local Foods from the VU Farmers’ Market

The first installment of the series, co-sponsored by Health Plus, will be held on Wednesday, September 21 from noon to 1 pm in Sarratt 189. Join Stacey Kendrick, health educator at Health Plus, and Jeff Themm, Nashville Farmers’ Market director, for a demonstration and tasting of several healthy and delicious recipes using fresh and local items from the weekly Vanderbilt Farmers’ Market.
