    September 17
    Green Drinks - Steps Toward a Sustainable Future: Energy, Food, and Water
    Time: 6:30 PM
    Location: B-210


    Most of us inherently understand, that in the long run, we can not continue to exploit fossil fuels to power our homes and vehicles and to use large amounts of water to produce our food that in many cases must be shipped thousands of miles to our grocery stores. We will explore some of the steps that we can take to reduce our dependence on non-renewable energy sources, reduce our need for large amounts of water for food production, and enable us to provide some or all of our food locally.
