Dayton Green Drinks is a casual social event where emerging and established community leaders network and link ideas to create a concentrated effort of positive change for our region.
They have a lively mixture of people from academia, agriculture, government, non-profits and business. Come along and you’ll be made welcome. Just say, “are you green?” and they’ll look after you and introduce you to whoever is there. 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 is always a different crowd, making Green Drinks an organic, self-organizing network.
Attendess have found employment, made friends, developed new ideas, done deals and had moments of serendipity. It’s a force for the good and we’d like to help it spread so bring a friend along!
