4th Annual UNM Sustainability Expo and LOBO Grower's Market

Be local, be Lobo.

Come celebrate Earth Day at the University of New Mexico's 4th Annual Sustainability Expo and LOBO Growers' Market! This event will be held on Cornell Mall(just east of the Student Union Building) on Thursday, April 19th from 10 am to 2 pm.

The LOBO Growers' Market will feature numerous local growers, value-added producers, prepared foods vendors, as well as arts and crafts. The market is organized by UNM students in the Sustainability Studies Program Growers' Market Practicum class who are passionate about promoting local farming and small business, and educating campus and community members about sustainable agriculture and healthy food choices.

The Growers' Market will be a great opportunity to pick up your weekly produce, get a delicious lunch, choose some plants for your backyard garden, or simply enjoy the fun, energetic atmosphere and learn about sustainability. There will be something for everyone. Bring your reusable shopping bags, and don't forget your cash!

In addition to the Growers' Market, the Expo will include an Alternative Transportation Fair and a variety of sustainability displays and activities. We invite everyone to join in the Earth Day-inspired festivities.

For those who are interested in learning more about sustainable food and agriculture in New Mexico, check out the Growers' Market Practicum class blog, ABQ Stew: New Mexico's Food for Thought. During the weeks leading up to the market event, students will post interviews of local foodshed heroes, describe successful New Mexico-based food businesses, discuss agricultural challenges the state faces (and potential solutions), and provide '˜how-to' guides on various sustainable topics.
