Hendersonville Green Drinks welcomes Richard Freudenberger

On Thursday, Feb. 11, Hendersonville Green Drinks welcomes featured speaker Richard Freudenberger, who will present on Sensible Steps to Home Energy Efficiency.

 

Richard is the former research director at Mother Earth News and was publisher of BackHome magazine for 22 years. He is currently the energy and resource manager at Living Web Farms, an organic agriculture and educational operation in Mills River, N.C. that practices and promotes sustainable living and resilient farming techniques. The group will meet at Black Bear Coffee Co., 318 N. Main St., Hendersonville with networking at 5:30 p.m. and the presentation at 6 p.m.

 

Attendees will learn about how they can use energy more wisely and efficiently to lower their bill and help our region move toward a cleaner, more sustainable future. Duke Energy has publicly stated that if our region rises to the challenge when it comes to energy efficiency, that we will be able to reduce the size of the natural gas-fired power plant to be constructed on Lake Julian.
Come to Green Drinks to learn more about current environmental issues, have relevant discussions, and meet with like-minded people. This is a monthly event and everyone is welcome. You don’t have to drink at Green Drinks, just come and listen. Black Bear Coffee offers beer, wine, coffee drinks and sodas. A limited food menu will be available.

 

For more information about Hendersonville’s Green Drinks, contact Joan Walker, campaign director and interim southern regional director for MountainTrue at 828-258-8737 x 205, or joan@mountaintrue.org.
