Green Drinks Coming to Harrisonburg

Green Drinks

Green drinks aren’t just for St. Patty’s Day anymore.

On Thur. April 22, in celebration of Earth Day, the Shenandoah Valley Builder’s Association Green Building Committee is sponsoring Harrisonburg’s first Green Drinks at Cally’s Restaurant & Brewery from 5:30pm to 8:30pm.

From the website for the international Green Drinks effort:

“Every month people who work in the environmental field meet up at informal sessions known as Green Drinks.

We have a lively mixture of people from NGOs, academia, government and business. Come along and you’ll be made welcome. Just say, “are you green?” and we will look after you and introduce you to whoever is there. It’s a great way of catching up with people you know and also for making new contacts. Everyone invites someone else along, so there’s always a different crowd, making Green Drinks an organic, self-organising network.

These events are very simple and unstructured, but many people have found employment, made friends, developed new ideas, done deals and had moments of serendipity.”

SVBA Green Building Committee would like to invite all residents who are interested in the environment to join them for a night of good company and green conversations. A Facebook event has been created, and more information on future Green Drinks meet-ups can be found at www.greendrinks.org/va/harrisonburg.

“Come out and enjoy yourself while meeting other green minded business professionals,” posted Charles Hendricks of The Gaines Group architecture firm in downtown Harrisonburg. “No agenda, just fun!”
