Earth Day was April 22, 2018. To celebrate, this year the Marketing team planned a week of events to educate and inspire the FAMU community to include more sustainable activities in their day to day life. The theme of Earth Week was “Discover the Power of Plants.”
During the week of April 23 -27, the Marketing Interns setup an information table with helpful tips on conservation as well as an Earth Week on-line trivia game. For participating in the trivia game, students received a flower blossom kit and a corn pen. There was a lot of great feedback about the blossom kits.
Also during the week, the Culinary team prepared plant based recipes to be used in the Residence Dining Hall. Those recipes included: Zucchini chips with smoked paprika, vegetarian butternut squash chipotle chili with avocado, wheat berry with tomato and basil vinaigrette, North African vegetable stew, quinoa stuffed sweet potatoes, fingerling potato salad. All the students enjoyed the recipes but especially the vegan and vegetarian students.
