Sustainable NE Seattle

Connecting for a sustainable community



The ReSkilling Guild is a place to turn to find teachers and get connected, as our community shifts from the passive and disconnected life of the Consumer and activates the need to become Producers of the products and services of a sustainable lifestyle.  It's about a paradigm shift!
We are dedicated to sharing what we have learned with others by teaching the skills that create resilience and sustainability in our community.  The ReSkilling Guild helps to train teachers to become more effective in their outreach by sharing teaching skills, organizing schedules and locations for classes, and collecting materials required to conduct classes.

Hi ReSkillers!

Next steps are here for Sustainable NE Seattle, and we're looking for ways to make sure that we keep the focus on DOING things, which happens in Working Groups, Projects, and Guilds like this one! If you can make it, please come out to Sustainable NE Seattle's April 17th meeting, where we'll be talking about how we can move forward and getting ideas from the folks doing the work. This is a great opportunity to help to move the process forward in an inclusive, activity-centered way!

See you there!

Hi All,

Just as a reminder, if you're willing to act as a facilitator for a class, please let me know. We're getting some great submissions for classes to teach, and having folks to work on setting them up will be great.

Hi All,

We now have a web-based form for people interested in offering a class. It has more information than the form you filled out any of our meetings so far, so please go to and fill it out.

Aylee, I've emailed you the documents. I'm glad to do that for anyone else that's having problems viewing them, as long as I have your address.  Patrick

Once a Month is a good plan... I'll be there... suggest we look toward  sub-committee formation focused on variable ideas... from gardening to tool sharpening to kniting etc.

Request For Help:

Based on our meeting, there are several things we need to ask for help with.

  1. Our guild is the topic of the upcoming Sustainable NE Seattle General Membership Meeting on April 18th. It would be great if, as part of that, we could offer two or three very informal, hands-on workshops at the meeting. A tool sharpening demo has been proposed, and it would be good if we have others as well. Ideally these would be things that people could drift among, picking up skills on the fly. I am planning to put together a brief discussion of what we're doing and a call for participation, but I don't plan to take all that much time.

  2. We need volunteers to work support (note to self: next time, put the support check box at the top of the form, not the bottom). Things we need to be working on include: lining up venues, internal communications, course support and development, and outreach to students.

  3. Our immediate future! When shall we meet again? I like the idea of monthly meetings, and feel like we got a lot out of this one. One thought that I have is to tie our meetings to our venues, and try to rotate them around NE Seattle, so we become more familiar with (and to) the places where we'll potentially be offering classes. This might mean that we can't always do a potluck format though. Thoughts?

Please see the attached Meeting Notes from Deb Otto (Thanks Deb) and my own summary, based on it. For those who couldn't make it, we're planning another meeting, so hopefully next time!
