This Week in Atlanta

This week is a little lighter than last week but there are a still a few good events on tap.  The big event this week is the Beltline Night at the Braves on Wednesday.  Purchase your tickets through the link below and 50% of the proceeds will go to the beltline.  Unfortunately, I don't get the opportunity to attend all of the events that we post here on GreenPeaches but every once in a while we run across a good recap of one.  Two weeks ago, the GreenBusiness Works 2009 conference was held at the Cobb Galleria and the Verus Carbon Neutral Blog has a good run down here.  Last week, we had the opportunity to hear Nick Conable, Sr. Project Manager for the Beltline, address the Sierra Club Metro Atlanta Chapter about the current state and future of the Beltline.  It is very apparent that it is happening and that there is a lot of momentum behind it.  There are five new parks that are set to open by the end of next year.  Also, Cox Conserves named Don Wells, co-founder of Mountain Stewards, its 2009 Cox Conserves Hero.
