Friday Harbor's Green Drinks 
​officially 
started in spring of 2015 (almost two years old!!) and has been growing ever since. We've had some amazing events including at SJIMA w/ Fragile Waters, and on a research vessel w/ FHL. Our Green Drinks is open to everyone and is certainly welcoming to those involved in education, community orgs, social movements etc. Generally we focus on connecting 
​up ​
with new buddies and old friends, but with so many exciting things happening we are also opening
​ ​
the events
​ up​
 to announcements during the second half. 

January's Green Drinks 
​at San Juan Vineyards ​
was no exception 
​to ​
our amazing Friday Harbor events. THANK YOU! to Chris Lawler, head winemaker, who welcomed us into the awesome winery space and wooed us with his vision for our island wines. Hopefully you had a chance to barrel sample the 
​new ​
yet-to-be-named (suggestions welcome) 2016 vintage Counoise Red Blend. Peppery and bright - really nice! As a reminder, the Vineyards are looking for volunteers to assist with bottling the 2016 whites, Rose, and new Red - March 29th and 30th. Space is limited, so shoot 
​Chris
 an email
