RACINE — Businesses and agencies of all sizes in the Racine area are invited to attend a free, two-hour sustainability event focusing on land use, sponsored by the Racine Sustainable Business Network.

This group’s third-quarter program will be held from 7-9 a.m. Tuesday in the St. Luke’s Health Pavilion basement auditorium at Ascension All Saints Hospital. Light snacks will be available.

Those who attend will hear about responsible and creative ways to promote native planting, protect the watershed, and serve the community. Presenters include: Martin McGee of United Natural Foods; Dave Giordano, Root Pike Watershed Initiative Network; and Ryan Laughlin of Poblocki Paving.

There will be a question-answer period and opportunities for informal networking. Participants will be able to assist RSBN with input on future program topics.
