Sustainable Cherry Hill, Sustainable Jersey and Flying Fish Brewery will hold a networking event on Tuesday, February 4, 2014 from 6-8 pm. With about 150 people expected to attend, the event will bring together like-minded people and businesses to socialize, share ideas and work together towards a sustainable South Jersey. The free event will be held at the Flying Fish Brewery in Somerdale, South Jersey's first sustainable brewery.
The evening will feature a brewery tour and an introduction by Flying Fish Founder, Gene Mueller, who will share his experiences owning a sustainable business. Sustainable Jersey and other resource organizations that can help community ‘Green Teams’ achieve Sustainable Jersey certification will also be available to answer questions. Organizations attending include: the Association of New Jersey Environmental Commissions, Sustainable Camden County, Cross County Connection, GreenFaith, the Delaware Valley Green Building Council, the New Jersey Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council and the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Burlington and Camden Counties.
“Whether you are newly converted or have been working in a green-related profession for years, this event is a great place to connect and make new friends,” said Lori Braunstein, founder and president of Sustainable Cherry Hill. Sustainable Cherry Hill has its own Green Drinks chapter that brings together environmentally-minded people each month over beverages to discuss green and sustainable solutions, ideas and much more. It is part of an international movement and a collaborative effort with Green Drinks Philadelphia.
"Currently 35 out of a total of 37 municipalities in Camden County are registered with Sustainable Jersey and working on sustainability programs. This event is a great opportunity to give these community members a chance to learn more about each other and unite as a region focused on sustainability," said Donna Drewes, co-director of Sustainable Jersey.
The event is open to the public. Although this event is free, space is limited and registration is required. To register for this event, visit www.sustainablecherryhill.org or use the REGISTRATION LINK.
