Catch up with friends and colleagues working in the environmental field!
I'm so looking forward to seeing you all at Pour Mt. Kisco. If you don't know about Pour Wine Bar, you are in for a treat. Owner Anthony Colasacco is committed to running a sustainable establishment and is known for his discerning taste. He'll tell us more about his green commitments at the get-together.
June 26th Themes:

Dan Welsh, Town Councilman in Lewisboro and Board member of the Northern Westchester Energy Action Consortium will lead a brief brainstorming session on what we could institute to create a better environment for the expansion of local food opportunities.
Heather Flournoy, cloud marketing strategist and founder of the KatonahGreen network, will speak about community building strategies, and the integral role of food in all sustainability issues.
ABOUT GREEN DRINKS INTERNATIONAL
From the GreenDrinks International site:
Every month people who work in the environmental field meet up at informal sessions known as Green Drinks. Come along and you'll be made welcome. Green Drinks is 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. It's a force for the good!
You are encouraged to join GreenDrinks Westchester organized by Lea Cullen Boyer (Green Guru Network) and Dani Glaser (Westchester Green Business Challenge)
There is no charge for this meetup, and you should plan on buying your own drinks and supporting our Host, Anthony!
I can't say enough about Pour Wine Bar. Anthony's selection of wines are not only excellent, they are all from organic, biodynamic or sustainable small farms, and his scotch collection is the best in the area, and also small batch and sustainable with plenty of local selections.
