2014 Expo & Growers’ Market

Thanks to all who contributed to the success of the 6th Annual UNM Sustainability Expo & Lobo Growers’ Market! Over 60 vendors and thousands of customers enjoyed the Earth Day celebrations on a sunny (and slightly windy) Albuquerque day on Cornell Mall.

UNM Parking & Transportation Services, the Office of Sustainability, and the Sustainability Studies Program Growers’ Market Practicum students deserve special recognition for their efforts. And, with the help of Knowaste, we worked toward making the expo a no-waste event.

In addition, much gratitude goes out to Noah and his crew of Uplift artists who impressed the crowd with breakdancing, bellydancing and live art demonstrations.
