Profile Information

What parts of our mission are you interested in (for example, growing food/food security, appropriate energy technologies, transportation, community building, etc.)?
I'm interested in it all, but I know that's a little misleading. Food issues are a primary concern. Community building probably comes second. And appropriate technologies rank above transportation, but it's all part of the same whole.
How do you see yourself being involved with Sustainable NE Seattle? What skills, talents and passions are you willing to share?
As a long-time environmentalist, I've studied the "situation" extensively. I studied at Evergreen, then got a degree in landscape architecture at Oregon. I operate Westland Gardens, a design-build business.

Berry Picking Season has begun!

Happy First Day of Summer!

It's been an unusual weather season this year, hasn't it?  So much wonderful rain and early season warmth.  Kind of unusual to have so many record breaking heat days in Spring.  Although it looks like we're heading into La Nina and saying adios to El Nino, it's shaping up to be a great gardening season.  Berries are coming in with gusto, and I've been picking them all over the garden.  

I just heard from an old friend some of you may also know, Gil…

Future of Seattle Farm Co-op

The Seattle Farm Co-op recently closed its' retail sales location on S. Jackson Street due to the loss of their lease.  The search for a new location has been elusive, as affordable warehouse locations are at a premium in our face growing city.  The membership will be holding a very important meeting soon to decide what to do about this dilemma, and the options on the table seem to be far reaching.  Clearly the support and growth of the membership plays a significant role and this is where…

BEEKEEPERS Support Group Forming, Join Us

"Hi, my name is Keith, and I am a beekeeper."  

Does this sound familiar?  Sometimes that's the way it feels, like I have to admit that I am hooked on keeping bees and I need help.

Are there others, keeping bees in Northeast Seattle, that think they could benefit from working together rather than alone, with their bees?  Regular monitoring of the bees and doing what's right to keep them happy goes a long way towards achieving a successful harvest of honey.  And I would like to…

Permaculture Nursery Expotition

The Sno-Isle Permaculture Network has developed a regular project oriented work party and potluck schedule, a model for what we are doing in SusNE.  It's not just a lot of talk, but a chance to help your friends or host a project yourself.  The next one in March 20th and I'm attending.  If anyone is interested in going along, I'll be driving and would welcome the company.
