Here's what happened in JUNE. . .
Sustainable JC launched its new monthly SJC Green Drinks + ART on June 1st up at Journal Square in the small 'amphibian' theater park in front of the Culinary Conference Center - we were part of the JC Fridays city-wide celebration of the ARTS event.
It was a fabulous and intimate gathering with 50+ new and old friends coming together to eat and listen and get to know each other. If you were listening in . . . . they were talking about what they are doing or want to do to make JC a more sustainable place to live and work. All this around some cool vibes by David Trotta & Friends - Anthony Pocetti, Brad Blume - and pop-up vocalist Peggie !!
