RAVENSWOOD — One of the biggest obstacles to living a greener life is not knowing how to turn theory into practice.

The Ravenswood Community Council's Sustainable Speaker Series is designed to provide information on steps people can take — be it in their home or business — to reduce their environmental footprint.

The latest installment in the series is set for 6-8:30 p.m. Sept. 18 at Begyle Brewing, 1800 W. Cuyler Ave.

Scheduled presenters include Harriet Festing, water director at the Center for Neighborhood Technology, who will field questions on any topic related to water, be it basement back-ups or pollution.

Janice Thompson of the Chicago Conservation Corps will demystify the electricity system and offer ideas on changes that can be made on both the production and consumption ends.

The Chicago Market, a prospective North Side community co-op, continues its pitch for 1,000 members by the end of the month.

The cost is $15, with tickets being sold in advance. The admission price includes two Begyle brews, a self-guided tour of the brewery and food from the newly opened Mangal Bar and Grille.
