Making Sustainable Choices
Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania
Sat, Jun 2, 2012, 10am - 12pm
Tickets: 25 members, 30 non-members
The goal of a becoming "more sustainable" is a popular idea, but to many of us, sustainability remains a difficult concept to define. This class will explore the meaning of sustainability and how, through our everyday lifestyle choices, we can move towards creating more ecologically sustainable landscapes, communities, and lives. Participants will gain a better understanding of how the everyday choices each of us makes has an impact on the environment. Participants will learn about some low cost, do-it-yourself techniques they can implement at their own homes and places of business, including harvesting rain water, the creative re-use of materials to reduce our 'eco-footprint,' and employing intelligent design strategies that will help improve the health of the surrounding ecosystem.
