Last month Jesse Bloom and David Boehnlein made a presentation to Sustainable NE Seattle in support of their new book: PRACTICAL PERMACULTURE for Home Landscapes, Your Community, and the Whole Earth.

In good shape, showing some evidence of years of happy use.
17 1/2" deep
29 1/2" high
2 letter sized drawers
Marantz PM-54 amplifier. About 30 years old, worked well up until 3 years ago when it was put in storage.
Comes with a pair of Sony SS-J50 bookshelf speakers that also worked well until put into storage.
It's a good sounding system and the price is right - free.
Maple Leaf pickup.

I am a parent of a student at Nathan Hale High School and I noticed there is a Sustainable NE project using the greenhouse there. I am interested to learn more, but could not make the recent meeting. Could someone fill me in? I am looking for a way to get involved with you guys and my daughter's school. Thanks!

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…Continue
