Fracking and GMOs headline this summer´s Boulderganic After Hours event


Boulder Weekly is celebrating the release of our summer edition of Boulderganic at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 28. This summer’s event is sponsored by Eco-Cycle and is being held at Rembrandt Yard, 1301 Spruce St. (just east of the Boulderado Hotel) and we want you to join us.

We’re pleased to be partnering with Rembrandt Yard for this event, which will also include complimentary appetizers provided by A Spice of Life Catering as well as additional expo tables featuring Hanuman Chai and other green, local businesses.

The goal of the Boulderganic After Hours gatherings are always to provide a place to talk about the issues that matter most to the residents of Boulder County — issues like the environment, sustainability, health and food. At each gathering, we try to highlight a theme that is timely to the season, a particular issue or the political calendar, and this summer’s event, which has been titled “The Politics of Green,” is no different.

With that in mind, we have chosen the subjects of hydraulic fracturing (fracking) and genetically modified organisms (GMOs) for this After Hours event. With both of these issues at the forefront of concern for county voters as elections approach, we have invited our county commissioners as well as the candidates for the two open commissioner seats that will be filled in November. We are also hoping to see a few members of our various city councils from around the county who are truly on the front lines of the fracking issue. In addition, we will be providing a couple of informative speakers on these topics.

It’s our hope that this event will provide an opportunity for everyone who is currently working towards solutions on these two issues, or who is simply concerned about the impact that fracking and GMOs are having on our communities, to gather and exchange ideas in a casual, friendly setting. Boulder Weekly staff will also be joining in the conversation and we hope that you will, too.

So bring your questions, suggestions and appetite, and join us free of charge for an enlightening, fun and important evening. And thanks for being loyal Boulderganic readers.
