City of Ann Arbor 2017 Sustainable Ann Arbor Forum: Grow Your Own
Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
Join the conversation about sustainability in Ann Arbor as the City and the Ann Arbor District Library host their annual Sustainable Ann Arbor series. The series of four events (held monthly through April) each focused on a different element of sustainability from Ann Arbor’s Sustainability Framework.
The final event in this series is Grow Your Own. Local gardening experts share tips and tricks to help you grow your own fruits, veggies, flowers, and more. Panelists include:
Jason Frenzel, Ann Arbor City Councilmember
Monica Milla, Master Gardener
Drew Lathin, General Manager of Creating Sustainable Landscapes, LLC
Caitlyn Dickinson, Biodynamic Beekeeper
Emily Springfield, Founder of Preserving Traditions
The forums offer an opportunity to learn more about sustainability in the community and tips for actions that residents can take to live more sustainably. A think tank of local stakeholders including representatives from community organizations, and staff from both the City of Ann Arbor and Washtenaw County will join the public to discuss local sustainability efforts and challenges in our community.
Each program will include a series of short presentations followed by a question and answer session. Speakers for this session are to be announced.
This event is cosponsored by the City of Ann Arbor and details of the series will be posted online on The City of Ann Arbor's Sustainability site. For information and videos from current and past Sustainable Ann Arbor Forums, please visit the City’s Sustainability website.
