Engaging Today for a Thriving Tomorrow
Join Sustainable Seattle for a craft cocktail and local food celebration where you will learn about our work with the community and join in supporting our 2014 goals.
March 22nd: Come Depave with Us!
You are invited to bring your muscle to chop up asphalt and make way for a community courtyard at Highland Park Improvement Club (HPIC). Join Sustainable Seattle, Stewardship Partners, and Highland Park neighbors as we bring the Depave model out of Portland to King County, peeling up some of HPIC’s parking lot with the whole community involved. When the community work is done, permeable pavers and plantings will join the HPIC’s two rain gardens and cistern. There will be fun activities for all ages – join us for the fun and food!
Orientation starts at 10am. Learn more here.
Sustainable Seattle has been working with HPIC to green their parking lot for the last year! Learn more here.
