Green Opportunities is pleased to share that we received a $10,000 donation from Wicked Weed Brewing this week.

 

On Monday, Wicked Weed owner Rick Guthy presented the check to GO’s Executive Director J Hackett at their production facility. “We’re honored to be the recipients of this generous gift,” says Hackett.

 

“As Green Opportunities enters its 10th year of programming, we are rediscovering the importance of being connected to local businesses and learning from their experiences,” Hackett continues. “This contribution from Wicked Weed is not just a financial benefit to GO, but a step in the direction of ensuring that our training programs are supported by enterprise. Asheville’s economy is booming and GO wants to be part of that growth. When businesses support GO it closes an economic loop: GO can continue to train people to work and companies can find trained, dependable employees here at GO. Wicked Weed demonstrates a successful model of taking care of people without sacrificing productivity–an awesome example to learn from.”
