East Bay Green Drinks (Oakland Downtown)

Join us in going to meet other folks involved in green building, green business, and community. It's purely social, but there's great business connections, perhaps your future neighbors in community (or the folks who will help you finance or build it); read about a past one here or last year's August here or June 2012 here or July 2012 here. EBCOHO Member Marcia wrote about a recent gathering: met interesting, warm folks of like-mind and made a good contact for job possibility -- perfect

We've bumped into a bunch of EBCOHO members at past East Bay Green Drinks gatherings. RSVP on this MeetUp so we'll know to look for you. Note:Drinks are not included. Check the location each month, it rotates between Berkeley, Oakland and elsewhere.

The event runs 5:30-7:30 PM. Note it can be loud and is very informal, with no program. Usually there are around 50 there, about 10 from EBCOHO.

East Bay Green Drinks began in 2000, and is a monthly community and networking event for people involved in sustainable business, environmental & social causes, local & organic food, architecture & design, media & communications, education, construction, clean energy and more. It’s fun, it’s inspiring, it’s informal, it’s friendly, and it’s where we come together for the most important thing we need to sustain our work and community - it’s where we connect.

    Met some really interested people, primarily from the Environmental movement and nonprofit organizations. It might have been good to have had more info about the "Resilience" program in advance. (I wasn't aware that there was a special program until I arrived at the Cafe.)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
