Close to 100 businesses applied for a Thurston Green designation this year and the community will celebrate them at the Chamber’s April Forum on Wednesday, April 10 at 11:30 a.m. at the Hotel RL Olympia.

The luncheon will include a keynote address by Rachael Taylor-Tuller, owner of Lost Peacock Creamery. Rachael will share the story of growing Lost Peacock Creamery, a Grade A Goat Dairy in Olympia, Washington. Lost Peacock is committed to creating an environment that sustains without sacrificing the land and is a certified Animal Welfare Approved farm.

Aslan Meade of the Thurston Economic Development Council will introduce Rachael and will share how Lost Peacock Creamery fits into the larger Thurston County agricultural framework.

The event will also feature Green Business Expo and a chance to meet businesses and organizations in Thurston County committed to environmental sustainability. We’ll honor a small, medium and large “Green Business of the Year” to organizations who have gone above and beyond in their sustainability efforts.

The cost to attend is $35 for general admission; $25 for online prepaid chamber members and $30 for members at the door. Register today. Visit

Now in its twelfth year, the Thurston Green Business program has become one of the Chamber’s most popular programs, and for good reason — businesses that take steps to be green save money while protecting and preserving resources. Saving energy and water, while reducing waste, are good steps that benefit our environment. The savings that result from conservation boost the bottom-line.

A special thanks to our Thurston Green Awards & Expo sponsor, Olympia Nissan, a Bruce Titus Dealership.
