“What lit your green fire?”
Hello SF Green Drinks Friends!
Join us Tuesday, May 7th at Southside Spirit House, formerly known as Eve Lounge.
Our question this month is: “What lit your green fire?” When did you decide you wanted to pursue a career in the environmental field?
We’re thrilled to have Bay Maples as a sponsor this month – they’ll be giving away 50% off drink coupons to 50 lucky SF Green Drinkers, so make sure to stop by their table!
SF Green Drinks Team Update: We are actively recruiting new officers to our team for 2013. If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a SF Green Drinks officer, please email us with your statement of interest and resume at email@example.com.
Bay Maples is a design/build landscape construction in San Jose, CA, specializing in ecologically appropriate methods and materials. By salvaging, recycling and repurposing most of our project materials, we help save the client money, and many of our projects meet net-zero waste standards. Our gardens use native plants to create low water use gardens and support pollinators by mimicking ecosystems. Bay Maples is greywater certified and implements greywater, rain-collection and diversion whenever feasible. We pride ourselves on creating gardens that are sustainable, artful, functional and welcoming.
Bay Maples recently designed a demonstration garden, ‘Buddha Bungalow’, for the 2013 SF Flower & Garden Show and has collaborated with schools (Booksin Elementary, Room to Grow) and non-profits (Boys and Girls Club, Veggielution, Full Circle Farm) to design and install community gardens.
Bay Maples is owned and operated by Alan Hackler. Alan is a LEED accredited, licensed landscape contractor and licensed nurseryman. He has completed the Bay Friendly, Master Gardener, and Build it Green programs. Alan also holds certificates in Permaculture design, commercial aquaponics installation and is a certified greywater system installer. Alan regularly teaches workshops, often through the California Native Plant Society.
