2010-09-10 · By Editor
Green Long Beach! will present its plan for the next year, focusing on four initiatives generated from community feedback. The four initiatives are:
- Community-wide environmental education and outreach
- Building more community gardens and green spaces
- Encouraging and providing training for green jobs
- Organizing the 3rd annual Green Long Beach! Festival
The mixer will introduce you to other members of the community who share a vision of making Long Beach a greener city, and host public discussions, so we can collaborate throughout the year to make that vision a reality.
The Green Long Beach! mixer is Sunday, September 19, 2010: 6pm at Zephyr Vegetarian Cafe 340 E 4th St., Long Beach, 90802.
Green Long Beach! is a grassroots group, bringing together individuals and organizations to promote environmental awareness. Formed in 2009 after volunteers came together to plan the 1st annual Green Long Beach! Festival. In May,we held the second annual festival. Throughout the year, we hope to encourage interaction within the local environmental community.
We are part of Catalyst Community, a nonprofit organization in Long Beach empowering communities to connect around shared interests and make an affect in their neighborhoods.
The mixer will host guest speakers, open discussions, and the opportunity to meet with other eco-friendly residents in the city. There is no charge to attend or participate, but donations are appreciated. Light refreshments will be provided. Zephyr will be open for dining.
