The Lexicon of Sustainability

Transition Goshen is proud to curate the Lexicon of Sustainability with Unity Gardens and IUSB Center for a Sustainable Future.

Pop-Up shows have been held throughout the area to raise awareness about sustainable food and farming concepts through engaging visual stories.  Check out our calendar for upcoming shows.

“By illuminating the vocabulary of sustainable agriculture, and with it the conversation about America’s rapidly evolving food culture, the Lexicon of Sustainability™ educates, engages and activates people to pay closer attention to how they eat, what they buy, and where their responsibility begins for creating a healthier, safer food system in America.”

THE LEXICON OF SUSTAINABILITY™ is multiplatform project based on a simple premise: people can’t be expected to live more sustainable lives if they don’t know the most basic terms and principles that define sustainability.

Filmmaker/photographer Douglas Gayeton and producer Laura Howard-Gayeton have crisscrossed the United States to learn this new language of sustainability from its foremost practitioners. Their unusual “crowd-sourcing” approach allows the public to suggest ideas and even host shows of the work. These methods have helped transform their grassroots project into an international organization with volunteers across the globe.
