The planning and installation of Arbor Day Foundation’s planted green roof will be the topic of a presentation during the Green Team Roundtable meeting on June 11th. Participants will get a close look at the green roof during the lunch meeting at 211 N. 12th in downtown Lincoln. The following week, on June 18th, a second Roundtable will offer a tour and discussion about the dairy and commercial composting operations at Prairieland Dairy, 13000 Pella Road, near Firth. Both meetings run from 11:30am to 1:00pm and are open to all. Registration is required at www.wastecapne.org/greenteams/. Cost for each is $10 or $8 for WasteCap Nebraska members, and a zero waste lunch is provided.
Founded in 1972, the centennial of the first Arbor Day observance in the 19th century, the Foundation has grown to become the largest nonprofit membership organization dedicated to planting trees, with over one million members, supporters, and valued partners.

Prairieland Dairy was created when the Eickhoff, Goossen, Obbink and Rice family farms joined together as one. Their mission was to create a new kind of dairy: one that was sustainable, open and transparent; one that served people, cows and the planet.
