Two CALS experts are participating in a lecture series titled “Farming, Food, and Responsible Fruitfulness” organized by Bethel Lutheran Church’s environmental awareness program. The lectures, which take place at the church at 10 a.m. on various Sundays between Oct. 16 – May 7, cover topics such as relationships and challenges of agriculture and food distribution, land, water and energy use, urban and rural connections, food for the future, and food for the planet.

All of the lectures are free and open to the general public. For more information, visit the lecture series webpage, and be sure to save the date for our two CALS speakers:
