Piedmont Sustainability Junto
May 10, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The Piedmont Sustainability Junto is a gathering of invited leaders in business, philanthropy, science & government from around the Triangle. The focus of the Junto is our sustainability; land conservation, energy, product design, clean tech, food security, impact investing, transportation & climate change. Each meeting has a featured speaker, but not just a presentation. Attendees are encouraged to give updates from their specific field. The goal is to invite discussion, civil debate, collaboration & idea generation.
Free Event. RSVP here.
Our speaker is Tom Butler, owner of Butler Quality Pork & Renewable/Green Energy Farm in Lillington, North Carolina. Tom was born and raised on a traditional row crop/livestock farm. He is a waste to energy system innovator and activist for clean energy and the environment. The Butler farm also has a solar power installation. Tom’s work is a very current subject for North Carolina sustainability.
