Earth Month Activities

 The Sustainability Committee and the Urban Sustainability Department recently sponsored two workshops in celebration of Earth Month.

Presenters included Rashonda “Zoe Blaq” Bartney, a Certified UC Victory Gardener who created Urban Soul Farmer to encourage people to grow food and share healthy recipes; Mallory Burden, an Environmental Scientist for CalRecycle; and Iesha Siler, a Policy Associate for the LA Food Policy Council and staff liaison to the Working Groups on Urban  Agriculture, Food Waste and Farmers Markets For All.

Attendees learned how to make seed bombs and they were all sent home with one to use in their neighborhoods.

 On April 15th, attendees learned from professionals from a wide array of fields in the industry at a panel on Careers in Sustainability. Panelists Christina Hall, Executive Director OC Food Access Coalition and an Antioch Alum; Jeff O’Keefe, Supervising Sanitary Engineer with the State Water Resources Control Board Division of Drinking Water, Southern California Field Operations Branch; and Shavon Paige, Real Estate Officer at Los Angeles Department of Water and Power shared tips and tricks on how to stand out in this competitive and emerging job market.

Both events were free and attended by Antioch students, staff, faculty, and the greater community.
