What We Do
As our mission states, Sustainable Lafayette's goals are to inspire our community to act and advocate for environmental health and justice.
Local Action - Raising Chickens
PRESS RELEASE: CHICKEN WORKSHOP WITH PAPA JOHN
Lafayette resident, Papa John Kiefer, will, again, offer a ZOOM workshop on “Sustainable Coop Principles and Construction. The workshop is free and will be held on Thursday, May 20, 2021. 6:00 - 7:00pm. Registration is required, and here is the link to register.
We will send out the Zoom link shortly before the event.
The Kiefer Sustainable Coop provides all the natural elements for chickens to be healthy, productive and safe. It is unique in that there is no smell and no cleaning.
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 previous 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 the LEAF Award to students who have ideas for bringing sustainable activities to the community.
