{Green Careers} April 2015 Meeting – Elevator Pitch

March 15, 2015

At the April GreenHomeNYC Green Careers meeting, we will be developing and practicing our own Elevator Pitches.




You have about thirty seconds to convince a potential employer or client to listen to your whole story. Whether you’re a job seeker or an entrepreneur seeking new business, you need to quickly define who you are, what you do, and why you’re the best person for the job in a clear, concise and compelling pitch.



March Tour: Aquaponics Farm

GreenHomeNYC Invites you to
Join us on Saturday, March 28th for a tour of Oko Farms – an aquaculture and education company in Brooklyn! Through the process of aquaponics, Oko Farms raises freshwater fish along with a variety of vegetables and fruits to provide a model for sustainable urban food production. Aquaponics ecosystem water is continuously recycled leading to significantly less water use than traditional agriculture and commercial aquaculture. Guests will be treated to a hands-on demonstration of the innovative practice of nutrient cycling.

Time: 12PM – 1:30PM (Lunch after the tour TBD)

Please note the following:
• Visitors should bring water and sun protection such as hats, sunscreen, a long sleeved shirt, and/or anything else personally needed to maintain hydration and protection from the sun, cold, or rain.
• All visitors are expected to sign the farm’s Photo Release form. If you are 21 and under, we will email you the form before the day of the event, so that you can secure a signature of your parent/guardian.
