Happy 2016 MKE Green Drinkers!

Welcome to 2016! The Leadership Committee had a productive meeting a couple of weeks ago and have cooked up some great topics for this year’s programming.

But before we dive into the topics/speakers for this year, a couple of logistical changes:

  1. We have decided to change the regular meeting night to the THIRD THURSDAY of every month. (Kind of rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it?) In an effort to get more people to attend, we want to give a different night a go.
  2. We have tried to integrate more tours and site visits into this year’s programming, so be sure to make note of the location changes for these events. We are also looking at changing up our normal meeting place – watch for this announcement with the February event.

With that, here is this year’s proposed line up:

February 18 – City of Milwaukee’s HOME GR/OWN program

Speaker: Tim McCollow, HOME GR/OWN Project Manager

March 17 – Community Action & Food (Outpost Natural Foods)

April 21- Beepods

May 19 – Human Trafficking

June 16 – Milwaukee Central Library’s Green Roof Tour

July 21 – Lakefront Brewery Green Tour

September 15 – Local Food Panel
