Food and conscious consumerism

April 6, 2011

A teach-in and mini-workshop event hosted by Colorado State's student organization, Coalition for Animal Advocacy, includes a panel of four community members who'll speak about the merits of lessening our impact on the environment and others by adopting more conscious methods of living our lives and making consumer choices.

Monday, April 11
1-3 p.m.
Engineering Building, B 4

The Coalition for Animal Advocacy is hosting a Food and Conscious Consumerism event on Monday, April 11 from 1-3 p.m.  

From veganism to fighting hunger

Community members interested in veganism, nutrition, organic foods or fighting hunger are invited to attend a teach-in and mini workshops in the Engineering Building B4 on the Colorado State University campus.

'Worm Man' on composting

The teach-in will feature various local experts including John Anderson, who will be speaking about the advantages of composting. Anderson is most famous for being featured in New Belgium Brewery promotions, and is known as the “Colorado Worm Man.”  

Mini-workshops will follow the teach-in, giving attendees the opportunity to speak one-on-one with the experts to find out more about their specialty. A group question and answer session will follow.

The teach-in and workshops will also provide information on Food Not Bombs – an independent movement to share vegan and vegetarian meals with cities around the world in order to protest war, poverty, and the destruction of the environment.

Promoting compassion

The Coalition for Animal Advocacy is a student organization at Colorado State University promoting compassion towards humans, animals, and the environment.

Tommasina Miller, President of the Coalition for Animal Advocacy, is excited about the impact the event will have on each individual. "From composting and gardening to vegan nutrition and recipes, this event is going to be extremely informative to help you get what you need to live by your values."
