Rogue Green is about bringing the fun back to GREEN. The grassroots, the inspiration, the loss of ego and collective spirit of seeing the BIGGER picture.

Hosted by the always fun and mostly mischievous Ms. Stacey Champion.

Thursday, February 10 · 6:00pm - 9:00pm

LocationPhoenix Urban Research Laboratory (PURL)
234 N. Central Avenue
Phoenix, AZ

With special thanks to our wonderful sponsor, Emergency Restoration Experts, we are able to keep this event FREE for the community!

Rogue Green, in conjunction with Keep Arizona Beautiful, are happy to keep the momentum going in helping everyone "walk their talk" by bringing engaging and authentic green industry folks to blow your mind.

My friend Josiah is one of those people. Plus he's really fun and cute.

Networking: 6 - 6:30p, followed by Josiah's presentation and Q & A. We will then probably head over to Ghost Lounge to carry on the discussion, as PURL does not allow alcohol on site.
