On Friday Sprout! hosted a Soup and Sustainability campus-wide dinner in Coffee Grounds with fresh soups and bread, salad and pies! Arthur Learner FRESH New London came to give a talk on sustainability and the importance of getting involved in the food security movement. Many of us are already getting involved by supporting the GMO labeling bill in Connecticut and by attending workdays at FRESH New London. The event was a huge success and we look forward to hosting more dinners in the future. As spring approaches, we will be starting our work days and getting outside to work in our new garden site! There is a potential plan for weekend Farmer's Market here at Conn this spring where we could sell our vegetables. Keep an eye out for a Farmer's Market on the Larabee Green this spring!
