Growing Forward: a presentation by Curt Ellis

When Curt Ellis left Iowa after creating the Peabody-winning documentary "King Corn," something didn't sit right––and it wasn't just the home-brewed high-fructose corn syrup he'd consumed. Join Curt for a lively multimedia presentation as he shares the journey that led him to leave filmmaking and join with a group of colleagues to launch FoodCorps, a national service organization that is changing the way children relate to food.

Green Bike Tour

Join the UNI Center for Energy & Environmental Education for a bike tour of four small communities near Cedar Falls to learn how they're reducing energy use through the Get Energized Iowa competition. The ride begins in Dike and goes through Hudson then to Cedar Falls.

Farmer's Market at UNI

UNI will support local foods initiatives by having a farmer’s market on campus. The market is open to students, staff, faculty and the community. Farmers will have freshly washed, locally grown produce, while other organizations will be supporting local businesses and the benefits of a local economy. At 3 p.m. Kamyar Enshayan, director of the Center for Energy and Environmental Education, will lead a discussion in Maucker Union about local foods and issues surrounding the topic. UNI Green Project is hosting the event, with assistance from Green Life, Buy Fresh Buy Local, the Center for Energy and Environment Education and UNI Sustainability.
