Educating with Extension Newsletters

Each month, the Extension Service publishes a newsletter about its exciting programs and events both past and upcoming. See what we are doing and how you can become involved. 

For our July 2020 newsletter, we featured an article written by our UF-IFAS Environmental Horticulture Agent, Michelle Leonard-Mularz, discussing the reduction of food waste in the home.Food waste being dumped for composting_UF.IFAS_Camila Guillen

"On September 16, 2015, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the first ever domestic goal to reduce food loss and waste by half by the year 2030. This is in in alignment with Target 12.3 of the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals. Through these efforts, the United States will be able to feed the hungry, save money for families and businesses and protect the environment.”
