Got Something Green Going On? Bring your info to our next Green Drinks meeting to share with like-minded neighbors so we can support one another and find ways to work together to create a sustainable community.
Green Drinks Gainesville will meet at Satchel’s Pizza, 1800 NE 23rd Ave., 6-8-> p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 7. We’ll convene in the lounge – the screened room in back. Wednesday is New Song Night in the lounge at Satchel’s, so if you’re a musician, you might like to bring along your instrument and entertain us a bit.

Satchel Raye will take the stage during a musical intermission at 7 p.m. to share his experiences running a sustainable business and why he feels it’s the best way to operate. Afterward, the music will resume. Those of us who wish to network can migrate to the picnic tables and tree house areas outside, where, at about 7:45, Melissa DeSa of Florida Organic Growers, David Reed, who’s working to develop a virtual food distribution system for local farm products, will share information about the exciting work underway to develop a strong local food network in our community. Ed Brown will share research he’s done on the potential impact that increasing our local food consumption could have on our local economy: it’s huge.
Remember – If you’ve been to Green Drinks before, you’re an ambassador! Please help introduce newcomers to help us all learn about one another’s green interests and activities so we can help each other grow our green community.
