The Bedford Environmental Summit was a tremendous success. Read all about it in the New York Times (here) and the Journal News (here), which quoted Acting Executive Director Tom Andersen.
Westchester Land Trust is happy top be participating in the Bedford Environmental Summit, which will be held at Fox Lane High School, on Saturday, January 31.
The Summit is
being presented by the Bedford Energy Advisory Panel and the Bedford Garden
Club. You can register at the Sustainable Bedford website.
Here's a description of the event the two organizations sent out:
The Bedford Environmental Summit will offer a full day of informative lectures and workshops addressing issues such as oil consumption, school food, a climate action plan for Bedford, locally supported agriculture and school and community gardens. With a roster of speakers representing some of the best minds on environmental policy, it will provide attendees with a better understanding of global and local environmental issues; information about local green resources; and specific action steps for what they can do within their community.
An Expo of approximately 50 booths will provide a hands-on opportunity to experience the work of non-profits, businesses, student and community organizations that are advancing the environmental cause. A locavore lunch will demonstrate the viability of the local sustainable food movement. Throughout the day, the Summit will promote ongoing, individual and collaborative actions to create a sustainable Bedford community.
