This week we welcome…..APRIL!
Which of course means Earth Day, and over the years has grown into something more like an entire Earth Month. So even though I’m snowed in trying to come home from an amazing week at the Aspen Environment Forum, I’m looking forward to bright sunny days and a whole host of Green Events.
We start with a class on Organic Architecture taught by Eric Corey-Freed at Berkeley Extension. Wednesday evenings until May.
And then, like every First Wednesday, it’s time for San Francisco Green Drinks at Varnish.
