2019 Leahy Center Environmental Summit - The Alchemy of Art & Science

The Leahy Environmental Summit Focuses on The Alchemy of Art and Science: Creating a Culture of Clean Water

Our lakes, rivers, streams and ponds sustain us, but they face daunting challenges from the ways we have shaped our communities and the land. How can artists and scientists partner to communicate the value of water protection and restoration projects? 

Come to the 2019 Leahy Environmental Summit on April 5th in Burlington to share your ideas for art and science collaboration, learn about new strategies, and explore partnerships that engage Vermonters to understand, care, and act. Register here and help spread the word on Facebook.

Friday, April 5, 2019 - 8:00am to 5:00pm

Vermont Organics Recycling Summit (VORS)

Vermonters are making great strides towards 2020 and the full phase-in of the landfill ban on organics. The Vermont Organics Recycling Summit is helping lead the way: a statewide forum to think boldly, learn, and network about transforming food waste and other organic materials into valuable products.

The Summit will highlight business success stories, the use of compost products for storm water management, research, and outreach models. Workshops are designed to help businesses, institutions, communities and residents meet the State’s organics diversion, food rescue, and food scrap recycling goals. The morning plenary features Keynote presentation by Nora Goldstein, Editor of BioCycle, and a State of the State by Agency of Natural Resources staff. 

To register, visit the VORS website.
