It will be a lunch hour (or more) filled with optimistic news about current efforts and the direction our local leaders see us headed.

Amy will also be joining us from Iris Waste Diversion Specialists, Inc. where she fulfills her duties as the reigning Queen of Compost. Whether you’re a seasoned compost veteran or an absolute newbie, you’ll want to be at City Market to learn the organic ins-and-outs of turning kitchen waste into garden gold.
Our final presentation will come from Terry Miller, co-founder and Chairman of the Lone Tree Council. Terry will bring us an overview of local issues that are the current focus of this important Bay City-based environmentalist group. He’ll also be offering suggestions about practical, relatable and empowering ways you can help make a difference.
A few details are still being finalized, so stay tuned. As always, we’ll see you at the market!
