Our monthly general meeting on May 16, 2013, was both a celebration and an outline for our future. As part of our planning for the future, Sustainable NE Seattle is applying for 501(c)3 status. The steering committee has been working to come up with by-laws to form a framework for our work together.
For those who couldn't make it, here's a summary of the presentation.

Second Use is hosting an event to gather unused portions of paint - there's a sight fee to drop off paint, but worth it to keep paint out of our waterways and landfills!

"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…Continue
All over the world we are confronted with rising sea levels and more frequent hurricanes and tropical storms. We will see more heavy rains and low lying regions and coastal areas will get seriously affected by flooding. Rising sea levels and current action will allow waves to reach further on to our beaches, and our fragile beach and dunes systems cannot always cope with these forces and have no time to adjust. This is when beach erosion will occur, and we will have to protect ourselves and…Continue

I hope this is the right place to post such a thing.
My husband recently left us - our 9yo son Oliver, and me. He is living with his mistress now. :( Because of this, my stepfather, Max, is planning to move back to Seattle from Ecuador, for emotional support and etc.
He is in his 60's, and quite handy. Plumbing, carpentry, gardening, computers, pet care, etc. He wants to move back in May.
He is hoping to find a room in a house, or some space in a MIL etc in exchange…Continue

Sharon J. Collman (WSU Snohomish County Extension) has posted information about a little red invasive beetle and I thought some of you might be interested in keeping a look out for it. It was found & identified last spring and now is about the time it could start to show up if you are going to see it. The wordpress link has a good picture.
I asked permission to pass on her information and she said yes, so here is what she had posted to an email group I subscribe to:…Continue

I found that there is a Lecture & Fancy Fermented Foods Dinner with Fermentationist Revivalist and Author Sandor Katz in Olympia,WA on April 10, 2013 starting at 6:30pm.
I am new to Seattle, and in a middle of looking for a car. If I can find a group of people who are also interested in going to this event, I would like to go together and share the gas cost. (I live in Seattle area)

I will proselytize about native plant gardening whenever I think I can get away with it, and I consider spreading awareness of this topic as important as awareness of global warming, ocean acidification, toxic emissions control, etc., etc,.To that end, I would like to introduce this informative website:
and its newsletter:
Sustain biodiversity; garden with native plants.
Even though our city Yard is blessed with 14 mature cedar trees, it has been many decades since this area was what one might call a forest. I once spent some time in 1979, while looking to purchase my first house, with an 80 year old real estate man. He talked and explained at length about how he remembered the Northeast area of Seattle as a forest and all the little cottages along Lake Washington as summer season get-a-ways on the lake for Seattle families. The house in this Yard was built…Continue

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.

Check out the video "First Earth" by David Sheen from the Seattle Public Library. It's all about cob architecture. Not how-to, but why-to. It shows people in Ethiopia building traditional homes, and Yemen, as well as the movement in the U.S., England, etc. Even the extra features are great - interviews, slide shows.

You could describe my job as an environmental engineer as getting clean water to people and dirty water away from people. This takes some energy, and so it can be expensive. We try to take advantage of the fact that water goes downhill - especially on the Columbia and Snake rivers, from which Pacific Northwesterners get the majority of our energy (followed by coal and natural gas). Some quick Google searching turns up other…Continue
