We’re cooking up a great way for us to get together  — it’s a virtual Green Drinks on Facebook Watch, Thursday, April 2!

Going online, we’re focusing on “The Flowers and the Trees” to follow our February Green Drinks theme which was “The Birds and the Bees.” And  although the flowers are beautiful and in bloom, we’ll turn our attention to the trees,  highlighting all the benefits trees give us.

So, join us in the spirit of trying something new in our emerging virtual world and to have some fun while learning great things!
