Great turnout!


























Greetings! Thanks to everyone who came out and mingled during Tulsa Green Drinks last night at the White Owl. We had almost 30 people in attendance!!! Our crowd filled the 2nd floor until around 7:30 or so.


We handed out surveys for Planit Tulsa's initiative to choose a scenario for future development (http://www.planittulsa.org/) If you have not visited the website to submit your response, please do so!!! And for those of you who took them home, they can be dropped at any Tulsa Library location.


The 2009 Buy Fresh Buy Local guides, provided by Sustainable Green Country (SGC), were also distributed. The Farmers Market season is in full swing. Have you made it out yet? Click on the links to the right of these posts to find out more info on how you can support your local farmers and find better yummier food! During the SGC Council meeting (held at last night's event) we discussed the exciting plans for Local Food Week which will be held June 14th-21st. Stay tuned for more details!


Included in the crowd were friends from TYPros Sustainability Crew, The City of Tulsa, Tulsa's Green Building Council, Sustainable Green Country, Buy Local Tulsa (http://www.buylocaltulsa.com/), ICF International, Real Food Tulsa (http://www.realfoodtulsa.blogspot.com/), and host of others. This is truly a great way to meet your fellow progressives in the Tulsa area!!!!


Be sure to make it out for next month's gathering on June 10th at 5:30 pm at Elote. Enjoy their delicious guacamole, queso, & hummus for 1/2 price as well as $2 puffy tacos!!! Visit their site to see how native Oklahomans Jeremy & Libby Auld have made this Tulsa's greenest restaurant : http://www.elotetulsa.com/about.html
