About the event

FOOD WASTE PREVENTION WEEK WITH VIZCAYA TEEN ENVIRONMENTAL COUNCIL (VTEC) VTEC will showcase their commitment to sustainable stewardship of our land and resources by bringing awareness to our local food systems with family-friendly activities.  Vertical Farm Planting Activity: Join VTEC to create a vertical farm. Plant your own edible plant in upcycled plastic bottles to add to the collective vertical farm display and learn how vertical farms and other urban farming techniques can help us be more efficient with our land use and why efficient land use is so important. Transportation Trivia: Get ready to put your thinking caps on for an unforgettable Trivia on food distribution to learn where your food comes from and how you can make local choices to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Food is Fuel: Join the South Florida School Garden Almanac Release demonstration to make your own tropical fruit snacks. Food Waste Prevention: Making compost from food waste significantly reduces landfill contributions and enriches soil health, offering a sustainable solution to waste management. Join VTEC and our partners Compost for Life for a compost demonstration.

Take a tour of historic Vizcaya Village ($5 pp), take a yoga class ($ 5 pp), plant seeds, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and show your love for the place we call home.
