The public is invited to the inaugural Green Hands Sustainability Soiree, an educational event highlighting the conservation and protection of Northeast Florida’s greatest natural resources. This free event will feature local non-profit organizations, a wine and cheese reception hosted by Whole Foods Market, live music, and a screening of the documentary “Tapped”.
Activities begin at 4pm with an afternoon focusing on water issues including its protection and conservation as well as the relationship between food, culture and the environment. Local non-profit organizations including the GTM Research Reserve, Giving Greens, and more will be onsite to educate attendees on the wide variety of water and natural resource issues in our region.
Attendees are invited to enjoy a wine and cheese reception hosted by Whole Foods Market and live music by local singer/songwriter Chelsea Saddler.
A screening of “Tapped” at 8pm – the award-wining documentary that provides a behind-the-scenes look into the unregulated and unseen world of the bottled water industry and examines its’ role and effect on our health, climate change, pollution, and our reliance on oil – will cap off the days’ events.
The Green Hands Sustainability Soiree is presented in concert with the launch of Edible NE Florida’s Water Issue (on stands now through June) and the SJC Cultural Events Division Green Hands Initiative. The Green Hands Initiative is a commitment made by the SJC Cultural Events Division to establish and maintain operating practices that align with the mission of conserving valuable resources and reducing unnecessary waste within our industry, our community, and our world.
This event is presented by The St. Johns County (SJC) Cultural Events Division in partnership with Edible Northeast (NE) Florida Magazine and the US Green Building Council.
The day prior, June 25th, there will be a Green Hands Sustainability Fest at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre. Check out our Calendar Page for all the details.
