Sustainable Gardens: Sustainable Practices Seminars

The goal of this project is aimed towards increasing knowledge about local sustainable agricultural practices within college-level students at the University of Iowa so that their future actions at the university and within a society are informed and beneficial from a humanistic standpoint. This will be accomplished by hosting a series of three seminars that focus on sustainable consumption of agricultural products and practices in the state of Iowa. After each seminar, individuals will be given a free plant kit or seeds for them to grow, so that they will have something to remember the seminar by as well as a daily obligation to fulfill that will promote sustainable living. This will also promote the event while incentivizing individuals to attend. Through these actions, individuals will ideally develop a greater understanding of the food industry and how it can be changed to become more sustainable for future generations.
