Rooted Carrot Recycling & Sustainability Education Event

Rooted Carrot Recycling & Sustainability Education Event

Saturday, April 20, 2024 - 9:00 am to 11:00 am

As sustainability is one of the core values of the Rooted Carrot Co-op, we are excited to host an event focused on recycling and sustainability in Black Hawk County!

“This pizza box LOOKS clean….surely it won’t hurt to toss it in the cardboard recycling bin!” “This take-out container says it’s compostable…can I toss it in my backyard compost pile?”

Have you had similar thoughts? This event is for YOU!! John Foster, the Solid Waste & Resource Recovery Administrator at the Black Hawk County Solid Waste Management Commission will be joining us to share important information about recycling and waste management and answer YOUR questions on this topic.

The membership team has also purchased a Zero Waste™ Box from Terracycle for recycling plastic packaging. We encourage you to collect any flexible or rigid plastics that can not be recycled through your community recycling program and bring them to this event. Please make sure they are clean of any food residue.

There will also be an opportunity to win your very own compost bin!

Donuts and coffee will be provided. Please bring your own reusable cup.

Where: 1st Floor, Center for Energy and Environmental Education building
When: Saturday, April 20 at 9:00 am

The North American Review has launched the Cedar Valley Youth Poet Laureate program! Based on the National Youth Poet Laureate Program, we are celebrating local young poets in our 2024 Commencement event, where the 2024 Cedar Valley Youth Poet Laureate will be chosen by a panel of judges on April 20th 3pm-5pm. 

The goal is to identify and celebrate exceptional young poets who use their voice to inspire change. We believe that young people are capable of creating important works of art, and deserve a venue to both develop and share these works with the world. Please invite and encourage interested students to submit up to three poems for consideration. There is no cost to submit, but they will be required to set up a free account on Submittable.  The deadline to submit poems for consideration is Monday, April 1.
