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

We are building a network of organizations,…Continue

Additional feedback was provided by the community on the proposed plan at that public workshop, but the 35th Ave Committee also wanted to allow those who couldn't attend to provide feedback as well. So, the information was posted on their website for review. Click…Continue

The class was organized through Sustainable NE Seattle with resources from Meadowbrook Community Center, the Sustainable NE Seattle Community Kitchen, and the NE Seattle Tool Library. We met at Cedar Park School, on NE 135th St. and after a few comments about harvesting…Continue

As Leo said, we had an excellent response to our meeting on March 23rd, looking at how Sustainable NE Seattle will look as we move forward. We had a very clear message, in the form of a unanimous vote on a single model.
Based on that, we are moving forward with hammering out the details, with the intent of having things ready to pass over to the Board of Directors in just a few weeks! We are eager to have the input of any who want to contribute, so…Continue

Do you know about the Buy Nothing Northeast Seattle group on Facebook? It is a marvelous place to post when you have usable things you want to give away, or to ask for something you need. In other words, it's a forum for micro-local gift economy in action. I got rid of a big pile of (useless to me) rocks this week to a guy who was excited to have them for landscaping, and I gave a pair of shelves to a woman who wanted to build steps for her cat. Last month a fellow gave me a…Continue
In August of this year, my wife and I started a new peer-to-peer self-storage company right here in Meadowbrook called StowThat.com. The basic premise is this: if you have extra space to spare – like a garage or basement or shed – we have an online marketplace where you can rent it out to people looking for local, less expensive, and safer self-storage space.
StowThat.com helps support sustainability in a number of ways. By helping people put to use underutilized space as…Continue

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
