What is A Year in Green?

If you're not familiar with Atlanta Green Drinks, it's a free monthly gathering for green industry professionals & those with an interest in sustainability, its purpose simply to provide a venue for like-minded individuals to come together. It's been running in Atlanta since 2005 and is one of 500+ Green Drinks in cities around the world.

We held the first "A Year In Green" in 2011, just to do something a bit more special for December's gathering. It's grown in size scope, now a collaborative event for the green community that brings together a host of other environmental non-profits, professional organizations & eco-minded businesses for a single, super-sized holiday bash.

On the evening of Friday, December 11, 2o15, 500+ participants will meet at Ambient + Studio to celebrate our successes of the past year and common goals for a bright green future for the city of Atlanta, all against a backdrop of seasonal entertainment & music, delicious food & drink, and sustainable products & design – a veritable "showcase" of all that's good, local & green!

Sweet Auburn String Band

Americana / Bluegrass / Blues. "Sleazy barn dance numbers. Funk banjo shanties."

On Display

Atlanta-based photographers Virginie Kippelen and Shannon Davis recently had their work included in the Atlanta Celebrates Photography Festival. The exhibit, Urban Wilderness + Man-made Nature, was on display at the Trees Atlanta TreeHouse at Stoveworks for two weeks and included images highlighting urban features in the city like the Atlanta BeltLine. We were lucky enough to snag the photos for one more night! 

Virginie seeks out nature in the city and creates images that reflect on her experience of walking in parks and green spaces in search of a sense of wilderness. Shannon focuses on areas where man has consciously moved or manipulated nature in order to co-exist. She frames these innocuous reconstructed spaces as if they are beautiful natural landscapes.
