Sustainable Families

Are you busy with little ones? Are you finding it challenging to build community and skills while caring for a young child? Let's get together and figure out what we can do, together, to connect with others in our neighborhood and learn how to make our lives more sustainable while still caring for our kids. Join the group and let me know what you're interested in and when you're free.

Profile Information

What parts of our mission are you interested in (for example, growing food/food security, appropriate energy technologies, transportation, community building, etc.)?
Pretty much all of it--especially growing and preserving food, minimizing energy use, non-car transportation, and, most of all, building community.
How do you see yourself being involved with Sustainable NE Seattle? What skills, talents and passions are you willing to share?
What I really want to do is start a group for families with young kids. It's so hard to get involved with a toddler. And I'm thinking I can't be the only one. So I'd love to start a subgroup called Sustainable Families to see if there's interest from other parents of little ones and what can be done to bring this population together.

I can cook and bake and make yogurt. I have started drying food. I used to can and garden many years ago. I want to learn to do more so my family is not as dependent on the commercial economy and fossil fuels.

Oh, and I used to run a newsletter called the Frugal Environmentalist. Started after we invaded Iraq (the second time). It went defunct after I was hit by car while biking in 2005.
List other affiliations/groups that you participate in with similar missions.
Nothing right now. I'm home with a 17 month old and not active in anything :-(

Sad fact to not being involved, not to being home with my son, who I adore!

How did you hear about us?
Years ago I went to one of your kick-off meeting, then got to busy to keep going.
