Center for Sustainable Living

Please Scroll Down for Info on the May 19 Edible Columbia Harvest Tour

The Peaceworks' Center for Sustainable Living was founded in 1993 to promote lifestyles which foster simple living and a more sustainable future. The CSL team of staff and volunteers have touched the lives of hundreds of Mid-Missourians through our classes and our annual Sustainable Living Fair. If you are interested in working with us to reach out to the community doing sustainability education please call us at 573-875-0539 or e-mail us.

The CSL regularly hosts events which draw attention to the benefits of a sustainable lifestyle. We take a very active role in helping to put together Columbia's annual Earth Day Festival. Our other really big event each year comes in early Autumn when we host Columbia's annual Sustainable Living Fair. The 2013 SLF is coming up on Saturday, Sept. 14. More info on this is available soon.

The Edible Columbia Harvest Tour is Coming Up 
Sunday, May 19.

We will take a caravan tour of the urban gardens of Columbia to learn about edible landscapes, urban farming, herb gardening, rain gardens, raised beds and much more! We will see how growers dealt with last year's drought conditions and learn more about how to grow successfully when faced with extreme weather.

The tour will run from 2 to 5 p.m. The final stop of the tour is Comedor Popular, the new eatery opened by Centro Latino, where we will feast on a local, organic, vegan meal.

Tickets are available at the Peace Nook, 804C E. Broadway. Price includes dinner after the tour.
$10-20 donation per ticket
$7.50 for students/low income
$5 for children 6-12 (kids under 6 are free!)

Advanced ticket required. Limited seating available!
