‘Green Drinks’ event honors sustainability
Last updated 8/2/2022 at Noon
About 60 hearty folks spent a hot evening last Thursday on the Seed to Table (S2T) farm, with thunderheads rumbling overhead. Participants from little ones to senior citizens listened to representatives from The Environmental Center (TEC) and S2T share their organizations’ focus on sustainability.
TEC coordinates networking events called “Green Drinks” that focus on their three pillars of sustainability: a healthy environment, economic vitality, and social equity. TEC began coordinating “Green Drinks” events in Central Oregon in 2007.
The purpose of the event was to bring people together to learn, discuss, and advance a sustainable future for everyone in Central Oregon.
Priscilla Calleros, Events and Outreach Manager with TEC, spoke during the event.
“We want to encourage partnerships that share the same values and are embedding sustainability in their own way. TEC is expanding more beyond Bend because our focus is throughout Central Oregon. We’re excited to highlight and promote Seed to Table and the great work they’re doing in the community and schools,” said Calleros.
Staff from both non-profits expressed their gratitude to the businesses who donated drinks for the evening, including Three Creeks Brewing, Bend Cider Company and Humm Kombucha.
Seed to Table is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit EIN: 82-37956180.
