Me, green values and part of neighborhood for a long time. 60 y.o. F, young at heart…Continue

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…Continue

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.

So many good ideas, it forms a solid foundation from which you can begin to expand your understanding of permaculture and how to best apply permaculture…Continue

Well, it is the day after the 2015 HandsOn Skills Fair so I am reflecting on what happened there. When you are in the midst of the planning then the bustle of the event you can't always see what is happening. But today I would say that we had a successful day based on the following: new community members that became teachers and felt their class went well; new participants that have been introduced to one of our events and some of our community and may seek out other things to get involved…Continue
