6th Annual Sustainability Expo & Lobo Growers’ Market

expobuttonCome celebrate Earth Day at the University of New Mexico’s Sustainability Expo & Lobo Growers’ Market. Now in its sixth year, the Expo & Growers’ Market is one of the largest events on campus. This year it is scheduled to be held on Cornell Mall — just east of the Student Union Building — on Tuesday, April 22nd from 10 am to 2 pm. Everyone is invited to join in the Earth Day-inspired festivities.

The Expo & Growers’ Market offers a great opportunity to interact with sustainability-minded folks at a variety of engaging displays and activities, including an alternative transportation exhibition, a growers’ market, and a bicycle auction. Learn about sustainable initiatives on campus and in the surrounding community, connect with potential employers, meet local farmers, and enjoy the fun, energetic atmosphere.

The Lobo Growers’ Market portion of the Expo is organized by Sustainability Studies students who are passionate about promoting local farming and small business, and educating campus and community members about sustainable agriculture and healthy food choices. The Lobo Growers’ Market will kick off the upcoming Albuquerque area growers’ market season, and will feature numerous local growers, value-added producers, and prepared foods vendors.

Numerous campus organizations are responsible for coordinating the Expo & Growers’ Market event, including the UNM Office of Sustainability, the UNM Sustainability Studies Program, the Associated Students of UNM, and UNM Parking and Transportation Services. In the spirit of sustainability, the 6th Annual Sustainability Expo & Lobo Growers’ Market will be a zero waste event; we encourage your participation and support.
