Profile Information

What parts of our mission are you interested in (for example, growing food/food security, appropriate energy technologies, transportation, community building, etc.)?
As co-founder of Sustainable NE Seattle, I'm interested in all aspects of transitioning our locality to a resilient and sustainable community. I am deeply concerned about the state our planet is in and believe that it is primarily at the local level that I can make a difference. Sustainable NE Seattle provides a place for coordinated action on many fronts, and I see it as an effective tool for social change.
How do you see yourself being involved with Sustainable NE Seattle? What skills, talents and passions are you willing to share?
I intend to be involved in many areas -- in the Steering Committee (helping plan the direction and actions of our organization), in the Awareness Guild (doing outreach, educating and motivating our neighbors to fulfill the mission of Sustainable NE Seattle), in the Urban Farmer's Guild (helping promote good gardening practices, learning and using the principles of permaculture)...whatever it takes to move our community towards a "world that works for all".

Citizen's Climate Lobby (CCL) - Making a Difference at the Federal Level

Citizens concerned about stopping greenhouse gas emmisions as soon as possible are forming small groups around the nation to lobby their Congressional representatives. Taking inspiration from Marshall Saunders, founder of Results - a 28 year old organization that has lobbied effectively on hunger and poverty issues, they are learning effective techniques to persuasively influence key decision makers.

The first Saturday morning of every month these citizen groups get together at a… Continue

Introducing NEST - Northeast Seattle Together!

(Not to be confused with Feet First's project NEST, North East Seattle Trails) this wonderful non-profit organization is "dedicated to insuring that as we grow older, we can continue to live in our own homes, in the neighborhood that we love". It is built on the "Village Concept", an innovative approach to "aging in place" modeled after Beacon Hill Village in Boston, Massachusetts ( using local (NE neighborhood) volunteers to connect the community resources and social,… Continue

Come and join the team of Flyer Posters! Get the word out about our events and help build a sustainable neighborhood! Feel good about doing good! It doesn't take a lot of time.

I'd love to hear from you if you're interested and available any time this week, as we need to get flyers out for the February 19 general meeting and the Film Series… Continue

Hi Carol: Thank you for the welcome! I am still kind of getting settled - lets see if I can make it to one of the gatherings...I know I will enjoy meeting you all..

No. Creekside is in the Lake Forest Park/Mountlake Terrace area. My family lives in the Creekside area but the rest of our family lives in Seattle and we work full time in Wallingford at a non-profit pre-school. We were wondering if it was ok to join since this seems like a pretty area specific group. We looked around and couldn't find anything closer to our neck of the woods.

I appreciate your spunk and insightfulness.

IMHO is the acronym for In My Humble Opinion.

Again, look forward to meeting you.

Thanks again, Carol. I responded in a different way--am still trying to learn how to function in this group.

Attending one of the final public lectures of Buckminster Fuller (in 1983)--he died two months later, changed my life about 180 degrees. Since then it has been an intense pursuit to understand what he was teaching us and why it contains the answers our culture so desperately needs. Has been a very humbling, exhilarating journey of discovery/validation. What he reported (mainly about the purity of kids and integrity of natural laws that govern all human experience), plus the teachings of several other bright thinkers, truly gives us all we need to begin to take care of everyone, do no harm. Bucky felt one of the most important initial pursuits was a massive educational process that enables us to unlearn all we have learned (our cultures "inherent" story) that has positioned us in conflict with the integrity which virtually all other species, as well as the rest of "nature" operates.

When we get beyond over 10,000 years of misinformation, misunderstanding, and unawareness of our essential nature and inherent relationships, we will be fine. As you well know, overcoming vested interests, greed, fear, privilege, entitlement, indulgence, etc. is a formidable task. One, IMHO, that those involved with movements like Sustainable NE Seattle and Transition Towns are becoming well prepared to undertake.

Not sure if that gives you any more insight into what I might have to offer, but I am eager to explore such Ideas with anyone interested.

Thanks for the warm welcome, Carol! This time of year, the best time to reach me by phone is before sunrise and after sunset :-) Our Ag Program Director may be more accessible and can be reached at

I'd like to. I am just now learning it....but my girl friend knows more than I do and has some actual hands on experience with the bio-dynamic stuff which is important as its hard to get a handle on through theory alone. It could be a cool thing for someone to try who is open to pseudo spiritual stuff(it was created by Steiner) and already has an organic farming system going. There have been a couple of tests where it gave increased yield when compared to organic alone and same yield with less input.

I'm coming to your meeting, March 11! Glad you posted it on the site. I can't be sure, but looking at the bird in the picture on the link you sent me, looks an awful lot like the one that was in my apple tree the other day... Does it have a bright yellow band right above its beak? Looking forward to meeting with you!

Yes, Merlins are small, but I don't know what you saw, and I'm a birding neophyte, too. Here is an interesting site on research on Merlins based in Bellingham: There's a neat page on Merlin lifecycle, and a page with vocalizations. At our tree meeting March 11 there will be a whole table dedicated to the Merlins in my neighborhood, chronicling through photos the last two years, in which the pair successfully raised 5 babies each year (that's a lot!), and we've borrowed a Merlin skin (stuffed Merlin) from the Burke Museum to display. Also, if you want, I can give your email address to Barb, our Audubon member, Merlin liaison extraordinaire, who has camped out in my neighborhood for the last two years watching the critters and getting many of us excited about them, too. She sends out emails when things heat up and you'll be able to swing by to take a peek (we are protecting nest location from public but do divulge it word-of-mouth). Well, hopefully they'll be back to nest nearby. We're hearing them nearly daily.

Hi Carol, did you get the tentative film schedule I emailed a bit ago? Does this work for you? John
