Local food and farmers, composting, permaculture, renewable energy and recycling are among the topics of conversation and announcements as we try something different – “Open Mic” at a Green Cities monthly Green Drinks event. At every Green Drinks attendees get the chance to introduce themselves and make announcements about important local environmental issues and events. We usually exclude these from the Peak Environment podcasts, but decided to experiment and make those announcements the featured content of this episode. Let us know if you find this informative or inspirational. We may do an open mic episode a few times a year.
This episode was recorded at the February 28, 2019 Green Drinks held at Mountain Mama Natural Foods. In addition to “open mic,” Roxanne, Mountain Mama’s Kitchen Manager and Head Chef, describes the breakfast and lunch menus, which include bread baked fresh daily, breakfast burritos, and three kettles of soup. Mountain Mama is a family-owned and operated natural food store located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The store features natural grocery, organic produce, vitamin/supplements, natural body care, perishables, frozen foods, bulk foods, and bulk herbs as well as an in-house bakery and delicatessen. Mountain Mama is a west side landmark just minutes away from Colorado College, The Broadmoor and Downtown Colorado Springs.
