Grow It Green Morristown is hosting a three-part speaker series at the Hyatt Morristown, 3 Speedwell Avenue, highlighting key issues in local food, nutrition and environmental stewardship. There will be one talk per month, from January through March, held on the last Thursday of the month, focusing on a separate but related issue. The topic for the first event in the series, held on January 28, is “Should We Worry About Water? Understanding Our Watershed” delivered by Elliott Ruga of the New Jersey Highlands Coalition. Attendees will learn about the current state of our water supply and examine how we, as consumers, might improve or protect it. The fee is $10.
Grow It Green Morristown’s mission is “to create sustainable farms and gardens that provide equal access to fresh, local food and educate communities through programs focused on healthy eating and environmental stewardship.” In engaging and educating local residents, the group hopes to be “a catalyst for positive change in Morristown, helping it to be a healthy and vibrant community.”
