Community Table: Gardening in Prisons

12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Garden Time’s mission is to create garden programs for incarcerated men and women at the Rhode Island Adult Correctional Institution and elsewhere. Join us in welcoming Kate Lacouture, Co-Director, to hear more about their work in three facilities at the RI Adult Correctional Institution: the Men’s Maximum Security Facility, the Women’s Minimum Security Facility, and the Men’s Medium Security Facility. Kate will discuss the curriculum and its impacts.

One table, one conversation, and a great way for eaters, advocates, or those curious to connect and exchange ideas. Come when you can and bring your lunch or snack. Free and open to all!

SEG Presents: Green Drinks with Energize RI Coalition

5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Each month we will highlight the work of organizations innovating in the environment sector, followed by discussion and networking over food and drink. This is a great opportunity to find out how you can get involved in a thriving community committed to creating jobs and making our RI communities more environmentally friendly!

The EnergizeRI Coalition is a broad group of Rhode Islanders working to pass a carbon pricing bill in the Rhode Island General Assembly. The EnergizeRI Act is a bill that creates a Clean Energy and Jobs Fund, paid for by a fee on fossil fuel polluters. Carbon pricing is a market-based solution to carbon pollution that will lower emissions while energizing the economy.  At Green Drinks, we will be outlining the evolution of our coalition, summarizing our partnerships throughout the state, highlighting our progress in the Rhode Island legislature thus far, and sharing our vision for a clean energy future.
