Every month people from the all over the Upper Valley get together for informal  social and educational sessions known as Green Drinks.

We have a lively mixture of individuals, businesses, politicians, non-profits, and municipal leaders. Everyone is welcome join in on the conversation and we will look after you and introduce you to other folks in the community. It’s a great way of catching up with people you know and also for making new contacts. Everyone invites someone else along, so there’s always a different crowd, making Green Drinks an organic, self-organizing network.

In Woodstock Green Drinks is sponsored by Sustainable Woodstock and has been going on every month Since 2014. We invite local non-profits, businesses and individuals to make a short presentation that highlights their sustainability and “Green” initiatives in our area. Our hope is to foster an open and fun atmosphere which is welcoming to everyone that wants to join in. We work to engage people in new initiatives and empower them to get involved and take action in our communities. Green Drinks is a  platform to meet new people, explore new opportunities, and enjoy complimentary eats from local restaurants.

When and where?

If you haven’t attended Green Drinks yet they take place every 3rd Thursday of every Month. They are free and open to everyone. We work to keep the conversation around building a sustainable community alive at these events.

In Woodstock, we hold Green Drinks gatherings at the Worthy Kitchen, on Rt. 4 east of the village, or in other locations depending on the topic.

“Collaboration is the key to efficient problem solving.  Green Drinks brings us all together in one room to meet like-minded people on the cutting edge of what’s next in sustainability.  Meeting people outside of your regular circles helps you avoid professional mono-culture.”
