Networking at Green Drinks

2nd Friday of the month at Crescent Moon cafe, Downtown Hickory from 5 - 7pm.  We attended for the first time this month and enjoyed a stimulating and entertaining chat with some regulars.  It was wonderful to discover artists, a cob building expert and the Chair of the Green Building Council.  Cob or cobb or clom (in Wales) is a building material consisting of clay, sand, straw, water and earth, similar to adobe.  Cob is fireproof, resistant to seismic activity and inexpensive. It can be used to create artistic, sculptural forms and has been revived in recent years by the natural building and sustainability movements.  Hickory has a wealth of clay, so what a fabulous resource we have locally!

Come next month for a chat and to make some connections.  The food is good and inexpensive if  you fancy a bite to eat.

Update 2012: Green Drinks is no longer meeting. Thanks for the good times and good connections!
