There are many moving pieces contributing to climate change, including our food system. Our Winter Sustainable Solutions Series will focus on Food & Our Changing Climate. We will begin with a review of the basic science and terminology behind global and local climate change, then explore connections between our food systems and climate, and end the series by sharing tangible takeaways to help turn the tide on climate change.  

Our FREE classes are appropriate for all ages and designed to equip you with the knowledge and tools to reduce your eco-footprint and make Pierce County a more livable community for everyone. Register for one, two, or all the classes to receive emailed handouts and the Zoom link beforehand. 

Pierce County Planning & Public Works takes the health and safety of its community and employees seriously. Because of this, we have decided to hold all of our classes online using Zoom.
