Green Drinks with The Intervale Center

May 29 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Green Drinks is a once a month environmental networking event featuring a different non-profit each month.

This month’s non-profit is the Intervale Center!

2018 marks the 30th anniversary of the Intervale Center and we’re thrilled to celebrate with you this summer, starting with Green Drinks at Skinny Pancake! We’ll be taking this opportunity to share with you the fascinating history of the Intervale, what you’ve helped us accomplish over the past 30 years, and where we’re going heading into the next 30 years.

The Intervale has a long history of human habitation and agriculture, beginning with Abenaki people, who spent their summers hunting, gathering and growing crops here. With white settlement came waves of subsistence and market farmers who produced a range of goods for the Burlington community. By the 1980s, this beautiful and productive place had fallen into disrepair. When Will Rapp, founder of Gardener’s Supply Company, came to the degraded Intervale looking for his stolen car, he had a life-changing vision – what if we transformed it into a center for sustainable agriculture and conservation, creating an innovative, inspiring place for all? Thirty years ago, from that vision, the Intervale Center was born.

We will be celebrating all year and invite you to join us as we look back as well and look forward with:

A special 30th-anniversary party to celebrate with all of you, our fearless supporters and friends. Join us on Saturday, June 23rdfrom 4 – 7 PM for great food from American Flatbread and City Market, a cash bar, an 80s DJ, Bonnie Acker art activities, cake from Mirabelles, Intervale Center hat giveaways, lawn games, and a new interactive game that explores Intervale Center history and mission. Free and open to the public. No dogs, please. More event information at https://www.facebook.com/events/365416597299383/
