UNI Sustainability Candlelight Dinner
Panther Plot Produces Harvest Fest
On October 22nd and 23rd, students had the unique opportunity to participate in the UNI Sustainability Candlelight Dinner in the Rialto and Piazza dining centers. Each dining center hosted purple and gold "candles" and low-carbon meal options for an evening in an effort to raise awareness regarding energy usage. Students were encouraged to think about how their use of energy today impacts the cost of energy tomorrow, and how they might go about living in a more sustainable manner.
Panther Plot welcomed hungry guests to the first-ever Harvest Festival with fresh produce and a slow-roasted hog on Sept. 12.
The festival was held in celebration of the initial harvest of the Panther Plot and included a live disc jockey who spun records as both University of Northern Iowa students and community members passed through the serving line. The hog roast was provided by Carl Blake of Rustic Rooster Farms.
