Well our annual HandsOn! fair is done and more people can now: sharpen their own tools rather than send them to the dump; make their own feta, lip balm, toothpaste, soap, lotions, deodorant, nut milk, jam, tortillas, gluten free pasta and sourdough starts, mushrooms, soil, vegan food, beeswax candles, and pickles instead of buying them pre-packaged in plastic; prune and plant their gardens better; grow veggies in containers and homemade coldframes or aquaponic systems; understand why mason…Continue
I am volunteering with an amazing nonprofit organization in our community called EarthCorps. We are currently recruiting homestay families/individuals for the international corps members. Given how close our neighborhood is to Magnuson Park where the corps members do their environmental training during the week, it would be great to find some good homes for them while they are in Seattle!

Until recently many of us thought that pristine beaches and beautiful weather were part of our daily live, and would be forever.
