Get ready to be inspired and join us in celebrating the cream of the crop at the Thurston Green Designation ceremony! Over 100 businesses went above and beyond this year to earn the designation, and we can't wait to honor them at the Chamber's April Forum on Wednesday, April 10, at 11:00 am at Saint Martin's University Norman Worthington Center. Attendees are encouraged to arrive at 11:00 for a Green Business EXPO, open to all businesses that received a Thurston Green Business Designation this year. In addition, the event will feature an Electric Car Show outside, courtesy of the Thurston Climate Action Team. 

The event promises to be an unforgettable experience with a captivating keynote address by Elise Landry, Chef and Co-Owner of Chicory Restaurant in Olympia. Elise’s passion for sustainable food systems, seasonal eating, and local sourcing is inspiring. With a decade of culinary exploration across the globe, Elise has crafted a cooking style that embodies her commitment to seasonality and sustainability. Discover how her wanderlust and love for cooking have shaped her unique approach to nourishing people and the planet.

In addition to honoring all of this year’s businesses who received the Thurston Green Designation the committee will honor the following organizations for outstanding sustainability efforts. 

  • Small – The Flower & Vine
  • Medium – Finnriver Farm & Cidery 
  • Large – Puget Sound Energy
  • Municipal – City of Tumwater

Businesses awarded the designation may take advantage of a complimentary display table at our Green Business EXPO to showcase their business practices.
