Published on

The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum at the University of Minnesota is hosting a series of Eco-Networking events to bring together professionals to engage in experiential networking - an opportunity to uncover practical solutions to everyday sustainability challenges.

The first in our series - "Sustainability: It's What's for Lunch" included a tour of the Arboretum's sustainable practices: the Composting Site and the Green Certified Arboretum Restaurant. Professionals came together for a Q&A session with industry experts to find practical solutions.

For more information on this event and future Eco-Networking Events, please contact Beverly Anglum at anglu001@umn.edu
