Talk: New Hampshire Lives on Water - Planning for Our Future
Presenter: John Gilbert - Chair, NH Water Sustainability Commission
Sponsor: Center for the Environment

Take a minute to think about how water in the environment - our streams, lakes, wetlands, estuaries - makes New Hampshire a beautiful place to live, and contributes to our top ranking in terms of overall quality of life. Think about how our natural environment and our water infrastructure such as water supply systems make this a great place to raise families. Think about the role of water in tourism, the second largest sector of the N.H. economy. Finally, think about how all of these factors contribute to the N.H. advantage in terms of attracting employers and the educated workforce that today’s growth industries want to attract. In all of these ways, New Hampshire Lives on Water

Please join John Gilbert as he discusses the NH Water Commission’s work and its purpose to collaborate on investments, management policies, practices and tools that ensure clean, plentiful and affordable water that meets both societal and ecological needs while protecting water for future generations.

Would you like to be a Localvore? A “Localvore” is a person dedicated to eating food grown and produced locally. There are a lot of good reasons to be such a person including: reduced use of fossil fuels in packaging and transporting local food, support of the local economy, and enjoying foods that are less processed, in season, fresh, nutritious, and great tasting!
Healthy PSU is hosting two workshops to introduce Local Foods Plymouth to the PSU community. Learn how you can easily access locally grown produce and products year-round through this community led, non-profit organization. The workshops will be held in the Frost Common on Monday, March 11th at 7:00 a.m. and again on Friday, March 15th at 12:00 noon. Beverages and light snacks, including some local foods to sample, will be available.
