UPCOMING 2019 – Thrive Events:

dc thrive jan potluck event_horizontal“It’s the little things that make all the difference.”

We have 3 little things in particular that are making this potluck Thrive!!!


It’s that time a year when gratitude is in the air, so we at Door County Thrive wanted to focus this potluck on thanking ALL of you for helping our community THRIVE!

Because of this we will be giving away $200+ in gift cards from local + sustainable restaurants, cafes, grocery stores, and a few other green businesses! Be sure not to miss this opportunity! Everyone will get an entry into the raffle just for being at the event!!


Thrive potlucks are known for the incredible and health filled food brought by its caring friends and members, so we want to utilize that gift and collect your recipes and share the HEALTH!! Please bring a copy of the recipe of the dish you made on a recipe card or piece of paper. Everyone in attendance can snap a pic of their favorite dishes for instant use and Team Thrive will collect all the recipes to create a Door County Thrive Cookbook!! (Cookbook details and dates TBD).


During the potluck we will have a short presentation on reducing waste and an update on the Green Tier Initiative in Egg Harbor whose focus in 2019 is:

reducing waste.  saving seeds . making dirt

To kick start the theme, we ask everyone to bring your own UTENSILS and PLATES from home – this is a very easy and efficient way to reduce waste. Brining ceramic plates and metal utensils from home creates zero waste to use. Wrap them up with cloth napkins to protect them while traveling and use them during dinner. Avoiding paper or styrofoam plates and plastic utensils is a great way to reduce waste and keep plastics out of the Great Lakes. 

Door County Thrive is excited to host this fun filled, community potluck on January 31st, 2019 @6pm at the Donald and Carol Kress Pavilion located at 7845 Church Street, Egg Harbor, Wisconsin 54209. Please join us in this opportunity to say Thank You, Enjoy the Health and Reduce the Waste!

Door County Thrive’s vision is to build ecoliteracy through community action! Our mission is to grow into a thriving network of thinkers & do-ers who can add to the vitality of our already abundant peninsula. We aim to empower each other by bringing the best of ourselves into collaborations that will serve the greater good.

The event is free and open to the public. Follow us on our Facebook page:

Thrive Events:



April 5th @ 6p_FB Cover (3)Door County Thrive Seed Swap & Potluck happening at the newly finished Kress Pavilion in Egg Harbor!!!


A seed swap is a chance for the community to come together to share and trade seeds!This event is open to families, gardeners, farmers and anyone else who wants to network and surround themselves with like-minded people! This event is also a potluck, so please bring a potluck item.

If you are trading seeds, please bring seeds you know and love so you can add value and information about the seeds to those you are trading and sharing with! The goal of this event is to leave with some new seeds for our 2018 gardens!

Whether you’re just getting starting on your very first garden or you are a seasoned gardener/farmer, you will walk away with some new knowledge, contacts and inspiration as we head into the 2018 growing season!

If you have plans or knowledge you’d like to share, please bring it. You will have the opportunity to chat with people individually or in groups! The type of information that will be shared at this event is as follows, but not limited to… types of seeds, growing techniques, and seed harvesting.

If you are not a gardener or into trading seeds, but are part of Thrive (or want to be part of Thrive) please come and enjoy the company, community, networking and delicious food.

**Suggested donation for Thrive events is $5-$10. Your donations are greatly appreciated and help Thrive continue to promote and plan events like this!**
