Boone Green Drinks is an informal social networking organization that hosts monthly events for anyone interested in Green activities in the High Country. It’s a great way to catch up with local people involved in Green services and make new Green contacts. Boone Green Drinks Boone is among 15 other North Carolina communities and 725 cities worldwide that host monthly gatherings of sustainably-minded people who met to informally discuss green business, green services and green activities. 

Boone Green Drinks gatherings are free and open to the public. Participants cover their own cost of beverages and food. Green Drinks offers a great way of catching up with people you know and making new contacts. Everyone invites someone else along so the crowd is always different, making Green drinks a fluid, self-organizing network. These events are simple and unstructured with a lot of positive benefits. 

This is your chance to become involved in Boone Green Drinks, an organization that celebrates its 5th year of social networking in the High Country. We have a great schedule on tap for the summer and will be meeting the third Tuesday of the month from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Appalachian Mountain Brewery for the foreseeable future. Quench your thirst for a Sustainable Boone one sip at a time.
