      Sustainability Showcase: Elly Engle

      Seeding a Sustainable Transition This talk will provide an overview of a collaborative research project undertaken with Grow Appalachia, a nonprofit organization who establishes community gardening programs to support a sustainable transition in the coalfields of Central Appalachia. Elly will provide insights on the role of community-based organizations, local leaders, and regional agrifood systems in developing new economic and social opportunities. Elly will also discuss how these field experiences have influenced her new role as coordinator of McDaniel College’s new sustainable agrifood systems programming and curriculum. _______ The CSL will be hosting twelve Sustainability Showcases this fall to make connections between faculty research, personal and professional interest and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals while broadening the discourse surrounding sustainability. Speakers are invited to give a thirty-minute talk, answer questions and hang around to mingle with attendees. This year, the theme for the showcase series is: The Time is Now.  Events are on Fridays 12 - 1:30 pm, are held in 233AB HUB and include lunch for RSVP'd guests.
