Event: 32nd Annual Lowcountry Oyster Festival

Who’s ready to do some oyster shucking? How does 80,000 pounds of oysters sound?

Natural Awakenings Magazine and Charleston Waterkeeper are teaming up to show the documentary FLOW tonight at Muddy Waters Coffee Bar in West Ashley. The film, FLOW (For the Love of Water), details the global water crisis on a political, social and environmental level. We will be starting the documentary at 7pm, and it runs for an hour and a half.  We hope to see you there!

Charleston Waterkeeper was the chosen charity for Guerrilla Cuisine’s final year-end event, held on December 28th. Only a year old, Guerrilla Cuisine provides a unique approach to dining. Each event, held at least monthly, is a collaboration between organizer, venue, farmers, chefs, artists, musicians and a charity. To learn more about Guerrilla Cuisine visit their website.

This event was yet another great opportunity to shed light on the conditions of our waterways while encouraging members of the community to get behind Charleston Waterkeeper. Thank you to all those involved for your support and encouragement of the Waterkeeper mission.

The event was hosted and held at Queen Street Grocery, Charleston’s finest organic grocery store. With fresh crepes and organic smoothies made to order, Queen Street Grocery wowed all those in attendance with their quality and creativity. To taste these world famous crepes yourself, visit QSG at 133 Queen Street, downtown Charleston.

Charleston Waterkeeper has partnered with our friends at Green Drinks Charleston for their 2nd Annual Holiday Party. The event will be held at Yo Burrito in downtown Charleston from 7pm until 11pm. The evening will feature live bluegrass music, a huge raffle featuring prizes from local businesses, beer tasting and opportunities to sign up as members of both organizations. All proceeds will be donated to Charleston Waterkeeper to help with our mission of improving the quality of Charleston’s waterways.

Green Drinks is a dynamic group of individuals and organizations from around the Lowcountry who gather to enjoy cocktails, lively discussions, new friends, guest speakers and good times. Known locally as Charleston’s Green Happy Hour, Green Drinks Charleston is one of over 400 chapters around the world dedicated to bringing people together who are both living and practicing the principles of sustainability and those seeking to learn more.

So come out and kick off the holiday season with us. Don’t forget your business cards (and check books of course!…just kidding…sort of…ok, not really) as there will be plenty of opportunities to network.

This event is FREE and open to the public!
