Eco-Mixer - 7/17

Green Living for the Hill Country will host an Eco-Mixer presentation on Saturday, May 15 from 9:00 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. at Kelly’s Café at 505 W. Main St. in Fredericksburg. Come join one of the monthly Eco-Mixers. They promise not to talk over your head, or preach to you about the environment. An Eco-Mixer is simply an opportunity to learn and discuss different ecological issues that are pertinent to the Texas Hill Country. Discussions will range from basic recycling tips, to alternative energy sources for your home or business. The goal is to bring in an expert each month to fuel the discussion, and then showcase local organizations, businesses, and innovators who seek to bring positive solutions to the community. Of course, the whole time will not be spent learning - there will be ample time for socializing, eating and drinking. This month's Eco-Mixer hosted by Green Living for the Hill Country will focus on clean energy. Walter Moldenhauer, local architect, will be talking about "Passive Solar Design" and Paul Lochte, engineer with Pedernales Electric Coop, will be discussing "Net Metering" for renewable energy system. Denise Holtz, State Farm Insurance, will talk about insurance requirements for homeowners with renewable energy systems. Kelly's Cafe not only provides the group with tasty goodies, but is a leader in the community's environmental movement, serving locally grown foods, limiting energy consumption and using biodegradable to-go containers. And for more information about this and future Eco-Mixers, call 830-998-4133.
