Counter Culture Coffee hosts ‘Sustainable Spring’ initiative

Press Release

From Counter Culture Coffee:

I wanted to pass along the most updated schedule for Counter Culture Coffee’s “Sustainable Spring” initiative, which is free and open to the public. This month-long series of events is designed to educate, explore and raise awareness about sustainability and green living and will take place every Friday throughout March at 11:30am (following Counter Culture Coffee’s free, weekly public coffee cuppings at 10am), in each of their eight Training Centers around the country.

See below for upcoming topics at Counter Culture’s Asheville Training Center (77 Broadway Street):
March 14 – Solar Electricity with Katie Bray of Clean Energy for Buncombe. Katie will be talking about how to access affordable Solar Power and Clean Energy for homeowners, businesses and nonprofits.
March 21 – More information coming soon.
March 28 – Organic Dairy with Robert Bjorkholm of Organic Valley.
