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.

I agree that this guild should hold regular meetings. The tool library could be available for these, as long as they were during off-hours.

Susan, I like the idea of meeting at the tool library, though maybe for the first meeting, somewhere that we can break bread together will be better.

Brent, thanks for your willingness to share despite the distance! We'll keep you in the loop as much as you want.

Hi David,

You're in! If you haven't already, please go to the doodle site (linked below in my comment from yesterday) and let us know when you can make it to our inaugural meeting.

Hi Cindy,

I look forward to meeting you whenever you're able to make it! Just as a heads up, the proposed meeting times for this initial meeting are on Saturdays or Thursdays. I don't know if that impacts your availability.

Could you post the upcoming meeting/potluck on the events page?  It would help spread the word...

Comment by Patrick Linder on March 26, 2013 at 2:48pm


I thought I had done that. Thanks for catching my oversight!


Comment by Patrick Linder on March 26, 2013 at 2:48pm

Hi All,

Thank you to all who have responded to the doodle. The response was great, and based on your feedback, we'll be holding our potluck, get-to-know-you, and founding meeting on Thursday, April 4th, 7:00pm, at the Meadowbrook Community Center (10517 35th Ave NE  Seattle, WA 98125). Please bring a dish to share. We'll have an open meeting structure, so bring your ideas for the group as well! I look forward to meeting everyone and working out how this guild will work.
See you soon!
