As our mission states, Sustainable Lafayette's goals are to support our community by Educating, Advocating and Engaging our Community through a series of gatherings, local actions and awareness activities and events.
Local Action - Raising Chickens
Like to raise your own chickens and have fresh eggs in the morning? Papa John Kiefer has been raising poultry for over 50 years and during the past 8 years, he has offered workshops on how to build coops and raise chickens. See Papa John's website for more information.
Each Friday, a group of like-minded community friends gather at local coffee shops to discuss environmental topics and issues impacting our community. Reach out to Brad Crane for more information.
Lafayette Earth Day Festival:
Every year Sustainable Lafayette partners with the City of Lafayette, Chamber of Commerce and the Lafayette Library and Learning Center to host the annual festival, free to the public. More info on this year's event.
Sustainable Lafayette works closely with the city's youth organizations to guide our next generation of stewards in sustainable ways. We offer an annual fellowship to middle and high school students who have ideas for bringing sustainable activities to the community.
