Altgelt to speak at SU Crate Lecture


George Altgelt, a 1969 high school graduate of Schreiner Institute, will deliver the next Harry Crate Lecture at 6:30 pm, Wednesday, Feb. 24, in Room 106 of the Moody Science building. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Altgelt is an expert in soil nutrition and health, and how it translates to healthy gardens and healthy people.
After graduating from Schreiner, he studied chemistry, cellular and molecular biology at the University of Texas, and started Austin’s first organic nursery in 1971. Since 1995, he has owned and operated GeoGrowers, which provides organic soils and soil amendments.
The Harry Crate Lecture series is named in memory of Harry Crate, a former math and engineering professor at Schreiner who loved discussing science and technology with students and faculty. Previous talks have included former students, medical professionals, scientists and Nobel laureates.
