Starting on Tuesday June 17th, there are three great green-related events that you don’t want to miss. Check out the line up:

WHEN: Tuesday, June 17th, 6-8pm
WHERE: Teaism @ 8th & D Streets (400 8th Street NW) Metro: Archives/Navy
Memorial, Gallery Place/Chinatown, and Federal Triangle.
WHY: Because local sustainable food is simple genius and because the Teasim basement is a cool oasis in this heatwave. This month’s speaker is Susan Harris, president and newsletter editor of the Takoma Horticulture Club and co-creator of GardenRant.com.
RSVP: email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are new to the group, please include your name and institutional affiliation. And sorry guys–it’s women only.
Also on Tuesday, drop by Greater Goods on U Street for an organic wine tasting at 6:30pm. Sample organic wines for free and browse all kinds of groovy eco products including portable solar panels for your laptop, reusable grocery bags, and organic toys.
