Local Events This Month
So, we're a few days late for the Sustainable Business Leadership Council's first networking/educational event (which took place on the first of the month), but it was a great opportunity to meet like-minded Orange County-based professionals interested in sustainability.
If you get the chance, look up SBLC-OC online, or come to the next meeting on October 6 at Andrei's Conscious Cuisine, in Irvine.
One of our favorite non-profits in the area, The Ecology Center, is having a celebration of local foods at the only certified organic farm in Orange County. Not only will it be a delicious way to experience the best organic produce and wines, as well as free range meats and fresh seafood, but it will be a learning opportunity, as well, with the local producers 'share a story of how each item journeyed to the table'.
This is a great way to end the summer and celebrate with fantastic people, delicious food, and a beautiful setting.
The Education Committee of the Orange County Chapter of the US Green Building Council is facilitating an event on Renewable Energy on September 24, with a number of industry experts with tips and strategies for solar and wind installation, as well as information on incentives.
