Since the Green Bean first opened back in 2005, there have been loads of people who have played a part in its mission to be a space that fosters community. Every so often I am stopped by a customer who takes a moment to share what the Bean has meant to them, and it is in these interactions that I am able to see just how special this place is.
There are hundreds of other stories to tell- and we are attempting to collect as many as we can. If you would like to share with us what the Green Bean has meant to you, please email your story to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“…The inviting space relishes ease; it harvests fellowship and community—encompassing all walks, and is especially rewarding for those attuned to such. I feel safe here, cared for, acknowledged.” –excerpt from a friend of the Bean
