How can Penn State be more sustainable? Ask U.C. Davis

Sal Genito, UC Davis director of Buildings and Grounds, came last semester and spoke at Penn State's Forum on the Future for Environmental Stewardship.

One of the things they are doing: making olive oil from their olive trees. Seems obvious to turn untold numbers olives squashed by pedestrians into food. But it wasn't. The industrial food system so separates us from own food production that we don't think about olives outside of industrial olive groves as food sources. That's creepy. Take a watch.

(If memory serves, our own Jackie Edmondson was there.)
