Green Speaker Series: Barbara Warren from Salem Sound Coastwatch

Barbara Warren from Salem Sound Coastwatch will discuss composting at CGB’s Green Speaker Series. Composting is a great green trick – create a natural fertilizer by “recycling” particular household waste. Warren will show us just how easy it is to compost, and CGB will be raffling off a compost bin! A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Salem Sound Coastwatch!


Saturday, May 8 @ 2PM:

Green Speaker Series: Andrea Cohen from the film “Get To Know Your H20”

Andrea Cohen from the film “Get To Know Your H20” will discuss how daily water choices affect the world. While bottled water corporations are spending millions of dollars each year to convince U.S. citizens to choose bottled water over tap, Cohen encourages consumers to be curious and think critically about their daily water choices and how they impact the world around them. Cohen aims to teach the community of Salem about their watershed areas, and connect the viewer with the resources to find answers to other questions or concerns about their drinking water." We’ll also be raffling off a rain barrel! A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Ipswich River Watershed Association. www.ipswichriver.org
