LA CROSSE, Wis. - University of Wisconsin-La Crosse students celebrated their own Earth Week with a new event.
The Environmental Council put on a Farmer's Market, the first ever for the university. Six local vendors set up shop, ranging from local honey to baked goods to jewelry.
One of the organizers says it will create awareness of the importance of buying local, a trend the world is moving towards.
"The world is moving towards more sustainable motives and movements," said Michael Vogt, of UW-L's environment council. "Basically, we're here to inspire that on campus."
Students are hoping to have the farmer's market once in the fall and once in the spring every year.
