All are welcome to Sustainable Ballard’s annual meeting!
Sustainable Ballard will be celebrating accomplishments from 2019, welcoming new board members, sharing thoughts on challenges and expectations for the organization, and identifying priorities for 2020. This is a great opportunity to get to know more about Sustainable Ballard, who they are, what they do, and how you might get involved. Refreshments will be served (thanks to a generous donation from Ballard Market).
Sustainable Ballard focuses on promoting sustainable lifestyles by supporting neighbors to develop projects with a broad range of sustainability goals, including hosting community events, building the local food supply through urban farming and food bank support, and sharing resources in the neighborhood. There are more than a dozen ongoing events and projects, most relying on volunteers to succeed.
For example, at the monthly Ballard Knitters meeting, volunteers knit scarves and gloves for people who are homeless. Ballard’s Edible Garden Tour offers participants a chance to visit beautiful edible gardening spaces in the neighborhood and to learn a variety of ways to grow food in their own backyard.
The Annual Meeting is also an opportunity to look behind the curtain of Sustainable Ballard’s operations and consider joining one of their working groups: GO (General Operations), COR (Community Outreach), or PEG (Projects & Events Group).
