PAISBOA Plant Managers Annual Field Trip to Overbrook School for the Blind on June 19

Our final Plant Managers meeting of the school year will take place on Wednesday, June 19, beginning at 11:30 a.m. at the Overbrook School for the Blind. (Please Note that the Wednesday date is a departure from our regular Thursday schedule.) OBS is located at 6333 Malvern Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19151.

The program will begin with a tour of the OBS facilities. Led by plant manager Pete Crippen, the tour will feature some of the newer features of the 20 acre campus, including Overbrook’s farm to table program, and their now four-year old orchard project created with the help of the Philadelphia Orchard Project.

Following the tour, attendees will gather for lunch in OSB's new greenhouse building. Our program will feature Mary Ann Boyer of Boyer Sudduth Environmental Consultants, who will share ideas on how schools can reduce their environmental footprint and develop sustainable practices for food waste, using The Shipley School's award-winning recent successes as a case study.

Don't miss this opportunity to visit one of your peer schools, check out their facilities, and see what great sustainability info you can pick up and take back to your school! To register CLICK HERE.
