A leader in urban agriculture will highlight the next Viterbo Leadership at Noon series on Tuesday.
Pam Hartwell, executive director of La Crosse’s Hillview Urban Agriculture Center, will speak in the Reinhart Center Room 107. Leadership at Noon series events are held from noon until 1 p.m. and are free and open to the public.
The Hillview Urban Agriculture Center is located in a state-of-the-art greenhouse on the campus of Western Technical College. The organization’s mission is to create a healthy community through a local, sustainable and accessible food system.
Hartwell grew up on a farm near La Crosse and has been involved in nonprofit work for 25 years in Wisconsin, Minnesota and California. She is a lifetime certified master gardener, and a certified artisan cheesemaker. She returned to La Crosse to help on some of the family’s farmland and has served as executive director of the Hillview Urban Agriculture Center since September 2014.
The Leadership at Noon series will continue Tuesday, Feb. 14, with Dyanne Brudos and Dale Walter of Bremer Bank. Audience members are welcome to bring their own lunch or purchase a boxed lunch for $5.
The Leadership at Noon series is sponsored by the D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership and the Dahl School of Business at Viterbo University. For a complete schedule of Ethics Institute events, visit www.viterbo.edu/ethics.
