The University of Wisconsin-Madison campus will welcome Terry Fleck of the Center for Food Integrity for a guest lecture on sustainability in modern agriculture on April 16 at 5:45 p.m. in room 1125 of the Biochemistry building.
The event is being hosted by the UW-Madison Collegiate Farm Bureau and College of Agricultural & Life Sciences Student Association with financial support from CommonGround Wisconsin and the Wisconsin Soybean Marketing Board.
"Mr. Fleck's presentation, titled 'Sustainable Intensification' will explore the balance between productivity and sustainability in American agriculture," said Jared Wendt, event organizer and CALS Student Association president. "We hope to welcome a diverse audience of students and community members from all
corners of the CALS community and beyond."
Fleck is executive director of The Center for Food Integrity, a national organization formed in 2007 to help build trust in today's food system.
The general public is welcome and encouraged to attend. The program comes at the close of a semester-long campus lecture series on the future of food and will be held in conjunction with CALS Week.
