Sustainable landscaping and gardening focus of Green Bag lunch March 28

The Sustainability and Environmental Management Office (SEMO) and the American Studies Sustainability Project will sponsor the seventh installment of the Green Bag Luncheon Series from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday, March 28, in Sarratt 189.

Join Julie Berbiglia of Metro Water Services for an up-close look at rain barrels, storm water management and pollution prevention as they relate to irrigation. Also, Mark Kerske of Gardens of Babylon will give an overview of techniques and tips for sustainably and holistically planting and managing your yard, plants and garden. Bring a lunch and learn about greening your landscaping and garden this spring.

All who attend will be eligible to receive small giveaways relevant to sustainable landscaping and gardening. Individuals who attend three or more sessions of the yearlong Green Bag lunch series will be entered in a drawing to receive one of two larger giveaways.

All Green Bag lunch sessions are free and open to Vanderbilt community members.  A video of the session will be posted on the SustainVU and Vanderbilt News websites.  You can find a list of upcoming Green Bag lunch sessions at SustainVU’s Green Bag Luncheon Series page.
