This past Sunday's lunch revolved around people whose projects deal in green initiatives by or for the youth. Guests included members of RescueEarth.org, the Garden Club president of FIU, a young farmer from Illinois, a high school exchange student from Australia, the head of FIU's Students For Environmental Action, the Miami distributor for Cyclus, a Colombian company that turns garbage tires into shoes, and others.

A gourmet vegan meal highlighting jackfruit harvested on Paradise Farms was prepared by private chef N. Oshun Marcella.
