Santa Fe Green Drinks is an organic, self organizing network of people who work or are interested in the environmental field and the social issues that effect us. Each month, a lively mixture of people from businesses, NGOs, academia, and government show up to connect and reconnect in an informal way. It's a great way of catching up with people you know, and also for making new contacts and friends. Santa Fe Green Drinks meets on the first Wednesday of each month. Come join us!
