Earth Week: Nance Klehm


Date: 5:00pm - 6:30pm EDT April 19, 2013

An urban forager from Chicago, Nance Klehm, will present a lecture describing the joys and challenges of “living off the land” in an urban setting. Klehm’s lecture will begin at 5pm on Friday, April 19th in the Egg. Her lecture will be followed by a meet and greet and Klehm will have teas and educational pamphlets available for purchase. This event is free and open to the public.

Widely known for her innovative use of urban landscapes, Nance Klehm will come to Washington College to talk about her experience as an urban forager and share insights into how she has managed to use her surroundings to achieve a more sustainable existence. Klehm is the founder of Spontaneous Vegetation, and has been featured in Time Magazine, the Utne Reader, Chicago Tribune, and many other publications and media outlets. Nancy is “bilingual in Spanish and English, understands basic French, is a canner, a preserver, practices yoga and meditation, has traveled the world, and can be totally hilarious.”

We are pleased to invite Nance Klehm to Washington College as a part of Earth Week 2013. Earth Week is designed to promote sustainability and responsible use of the natural environment through lectures and events. The Center for Environment and Society is proud to sponsor Nance Klehm and all of the events related to Earth Week 2013.
