In the Field: Environmental Networking at Green Drinks
>> I’m Farmer D. Here I am outside Moon River Brewery in Savannah, Georgia. We’re here for Green Drinks. Green Drinks is a national concept that’s picking up around the country. Savannah’s got theirs here tonight at Moon River. It’s a social network, basically people interested in things green, the environment, coming together to share a drink, kinda schmooze, get to know each other. So we’re gonna hop on in and see who’s hanging out. Come on in.
>> [singing] Happy Birthday and recycle.
>> I go to everything I can think of to learn more about environmental protection in harmony with economic development about it, networking with folks who know more than I do about the kinds of things I’m talking about.
>> Okay, Marsha?
>> You’re with Savannah Magazine?
>> With Savannah Magazine.
>> And what brings you to Green Drinks?
>> I mainly come for the networking. I mean, I’m always very supportive of environmental issues.
>> And Green Drinks brings a lot of people together without as many inhibitions as they might have in a more controlled setting.
>> So, I’m always here looking for new stories and just trying to find new contacts to help support our advertising in the magazine and I’ve – I’ve done really well. And I enjoy drinking. I’m just going to say.
>> I do, too.
>> You know, so, I really enjoy meeting new people and Green Drinks is by far – I meet more new people at Green Drinks than any other networking event that I go to, so.
>> Really? That’s awesome.
>> Yeah, and it’s a really good opportunity to develop the relationships that have already started and build new ones to help us move forward on what I think we need to do to press as a community and as a region.
>> Wow, that was eloquent. That one sounds like you might have practiced that. That was great.
>> That’s only one beer.
>> That was only one beer. We’re gonna come back after two more.
>> That’ll be good.
>> Cheers. To Green Drinks.
