Green Tuesdays: Films & Lectures on Sustainability


Next Tuesday, September 29: Winterizing Your Home

Chad Speight of Chad’s Carpentry. The typical US home consumes twice the energy it should. A properly sealed and ventilated home is more comfortable, healthier, more durable, and much cheaper to heat and cool. Learn the difference between insulation and air sealing, and important tips to make your home a better place to live.

Special Green Wednesday, September 30:
Michael Pollan Community Read Panel Discussion

Join sustainable food experts in a group discussion of the works of Michael Pollan. Pollan has been a journalistic leader in writing about humankind’s relationships with our food systems, nutrition science, and plants.

This program is the culmination of the Community Read on Pollan’s books: The Omnivore’s Dilemma, In Defense of Food, Botany of Desire, A Place of my Own, and Second Nature. Instead of reading and discussing one book, this one leaves it up to participants to choose any of Pollan’s books. Green Wednesday will be a discussion, co-hosted by The Natural Step Monona and the Monona Public Library, with a panel of local food and sustainable food experts: CSA farmer, Steve Pincus, of Tipi Produce; Steven Buchholz of Crema Cafe; Kate Heiber-Cobb, Permaculturist of Sustainability on Stilts and the Madison Area Permaculture Guild; and Denise Thorton, journalist and author of the Digging in the Driftless blog.

Green Tuesdays are on the second and fifth Tuesdays of the month, from September through May. The series is free and open to the public. Sessions start at 6:30 and run until 8:00, with engaging and fun conversations often pushing the conclusion a bit past that hour. The Monona Public Library is at 1000 Nichols Road.

Whole Foods serves treats, so come early for delightful food and drink.

Green Tuesdays: Films & Lectures on Sustainability is the enlightening and entertaining series of lectures, films, and conversations on sustainable living brought to you by The Natural Step Monona and the Monona Public Library.

Upcoming: the films Up Close and Toxic (10/13), Kilowatt Ours (11/10), and Mama Earth (12/8).

Green Tuesdays: Films are supported by the Dane County Environmental Council.
