Day three of the SustainableUW Festival kicks off with cookies, muffins, cupcakes, and plenty of coffee! Pick up some delicious Halloween treats in the lobby of Fishery Sciences and support the Student Environmental Affairs Society, an on-campus group dedicated to actively addressing emerging costal issues. The Halloween bake sale will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Then, head over to Red Square for the SustainableUW Festival exhibitor fair and more snacks and souvenirs. From 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., dozens of exhibitors, including the UW Sustainability office, will be chatting away about different sustainability efforts on campus and handing out items.

More events coming your way:

Come one, come all to the Farm Lunch Seminar in Gould Hall Rm. 435 at 12:30 p.m. Students, staff and faculty will explore issues associated with urban culture, especially ones concerning carbon and climate change as it relates to food.

Getting hungry from all that volunteering? The UW Farm and the Comparative History of Ideas Program will be hosting an informal pizza bake at the Center for Urban Horticulture at 2:15 p.m. Students, activists, and community members will have a chance to meet Dr. Eric Holt-Gimenez, activist, agro-ecologist, and director of the food justice think tank Food First, and talk about justice and the future of food.
