GreenTown Los Altos

Farm to Table Year Three, Oh What A Night!


Sep 2016


gtla-f2t-slider-2016Each year for the last three years, GreenTown has held an annual fundraiser in October. Year after year it has surpassed our expectations. Besides being a high energy, fun party with environmentally savvy people the catering is superb and wine abundant! What more could you ask for?

This year, the event will be held on Oct. 22, 5-8pm at a lovely private home in Los Altos. The Farm to Table dinner is our only major fundraiser. Which is why we’re hoping we can break all records for attendance. Your participation at the event helps sustain and grow GreenTown’s environmental impact in our community. Are you wondering such as what? Here’s part of this year’s results:

Water: Spread the word about the drought

  • Conducted two educational creek cleanups
  • Hosted speakers on a range of topics
  • Led a native garden bike tour.

Waste: Increased landfill diversion through education

  • Worked with four Los Altos schools to improve their waste management and maximize diversion from the landfill.

Watts: Made clean energy a reality!

  • Heavily advocated for a locally-controlled clean energy agency. This new energy choice program, has committed to providing 100% carbon free electricity to all homes and businesses in the region, including yours! Look for more info in Spring 2017.

WoW!: Encouraged more biking | walking | public transit

  • Upped our educational efforts on bike safety,
  • Supported development of a pilot bike safety education program in Los Altos School District and sponsoring Bike Day! on the green this August.
  • Provided gently-used bikes to under served youth in Mountain View and San Jose.
