Come join us for the very first Skills Mob*, at Hunter Gathering Place. We will be restoring the site's benches, clearing some of the overgrowth, and repainting. We'll be teaching a quick skills class on basic carpentry at the beginning, to prepare everyone for the bench repair. More seasoned workers can skip the classes and get right to work, and the rest of us will join in when we're done.
We'll finish with a discussion of future projects, so bring your ideas, the more specific the better.
Sustainable NE Seattle is excited to announce a new program, The Skills Mob! The Skills Mob is an idea that came out of our 2016 Annual Membership Meeting, and arose out of a robust conversation about interests and goals. The idea of the Skills Mob is that we will gather on a regular basis to learn together about specific skills and to work together on specific projects, using those skills for the betterment of our community. Each Skills Mob will end with a discussion of next projects. Skills we share may include carpentry, masonry, gardening, home repair, and various forms of community-building, self sufficiency, making, sharing, creating, and repairing.
We hope everyone will find skills to share and learn, projects to get excited about, and neighbors to engage with through this ongoing program. Come join us as we remake community barn-raising for our local, NE Seattle, context!
