From yellow bikes to an increased recycling initiative, the Colleges have gone green and are getting even greener. Reaching out to the Geneva community, the Colleges have invited Geneva CSA (Community Supported Agriculture program) Member Andy Fellenz to campus to discuss the growth of local foods in the Finger Lakes. Fellenz, a local organic farmer, will deliver the talk, Local Food-Growing in the Finger Lakes, at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 4 in the Seneca Room, located in the new Centennial Center for Leadership, next door to the Finger Lakes Institute (FLI).
During his presentation, Fellenz will discuss his experience as an area farmer and the significance of purchasing local food to help the Finger Lakes environment. He will also provide some historical and regional context to the growth of local foods in the Finger Lakes region.
The Fellenz Family Farm is part of an organization of gardeners and farmers that creates an ecological food system that is inexpensive and eco-friendly. Fellenz is a major contributor to the Geneva, Canandaigua, and Pittsford CSAs. A CSA is characterized as a risk-sharing partnership between the farmer and the members.
All are invited to attend.
