    Yesterday I attended the Known and Grown Farmers Panel on campus. It was very interesting to hear the farmers' perspectives and one of the farmers I frequently buy from at Lake St Louis farmers market, Nicki Morgan, was a panelist! After the panel, I went to the Carbon Neutral Climate Dialogue. Speakers at the dialogue included Mayor Lyda Krewson, Sustainability Directory Catherine Werner, and four sustainability professionals from the EU; Nina Sankovic, Niko Korpar, Justyna Król, and Grzegorz Gądek. I also saw @Matthew Dunn there!

      I wish we had that in Chesterfield campus. I miss the farmers market from working downtown.

    Check out this Ted Talk a colleague sent me. It's from 2013, but I think it really relates to our class discussions!

      Thanks for sharing the link.  I watched the video and it gave me another prospective on the chain of events that our technology gives us.  I have always said technology is destroying us but this shows the up side to it as well.  Thanks again.
