Topics have included green building, local, sustainable food production, solar energy, waste reduction, natural medicine, sustainable tourism and more.

“It’s always an affirmation to attend Green Drinks!”
— Richard Halpern, Founder, EcoApprentice

Note that all Green Drinks are free and open to the public, but we rely on donations to maintain the program. A suggested $5 donation is kindly requested at the door (free for GO! members).
