Sustainability Fair 2014 in early planning stages

Preparations are underway for the Flint Hills Technical College Sustainability Fair in April.

 

College Sustainability Studies Director Amy Becker joined KVOE's Newsmaker segment with an update Tuesday. She says sustainability is all about meeting the energy needs of the future.

Becker says the college program focuses on so-called "green building" techniques, local food systems and alternative energy. The college has partnered with Westar on a small wind turbine helping to power the Jones Education Center and recently announced a second partnership with Westar to install solar panels for the building.

The Sustainability Fair is April 26. Vendors and organizations involved in eco-friendly activities are encouraged to sign up. For information, call Becker at 341-1335 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
