New Sustainability Initiatives Tour at Santa Monica College
Ferris Kawar, SMC"s Sustainability Project Manager will lead an intimate tour for APA Los Angeles highlighting the school's innovative environmental programs and leadership in campus sustainability within the Community College system. We will meet in front of SMC's Center for Environmental & Urban Studies (CEUS).
Come see the Organic Learning Garden, hear about the free farmers market which gleans leftover produce from local farmers market to feed students in need, and learn about SMC's Sustainable Transportation incentive program, which rewards employees who bike, walk, carpool, or bus to SMC on a regular basis with a monthly incentive ranging from $15-$30. The SMC campus features a new PE facility, the Core Performance Center (CPC) which was awarded LEED Platinum certification. The CPC is just one of 4 buildings in Santa Monica to earn this category distinction. SMC also has a campus recycling and composting operation that includes a vermicompost system. Now who doesn't get excited about worms!
There will be refreshments.
