Tuesday, August 12, 2014 from 5:30 to 8:30 PM will be a community picnic and festival at the Gathering Place at Hunter Tree Farm, 7744 35th Ave NE next to the Wedgwood Post Office. Seattle Greendrinks is teaming up with Sustainable NE Seattle to bring even more hands-on fun to this third annual event.
When you arrive at the Hunter Farm Gathering Place on August 12, there will be opportunities for fun – and networking – at every corner. From making your own button to your own birdhouse, you won’t leave empty handed – you could even get your bike all fixed up! Organizations and businesses will be helping you green your home from the inside out – including laundry soap, gardening tips, energy efficiency, and more.
Here is a list of the volunteer opportunities at the GreenDrinks festival:
Someone(s) with living chickens and/or rabbits, that would be willing to bring them to show and tell about;
Someone good at soliciting donations for give-aways;
Someone willing to man the DIY laundry soap table;
Seamstresses willing to show and tell their re-purposed clothing and or fabric products;
General helpers for some shifts during the event, set-up, and postering around northeast Seattle, and social media networking (tweeters, fb, etc);
Individuals interested in demonstrating their household practices which facilitate living sustainably and resiliently.
If you are willing to help with any of these things, please contact Joann Kerr at email@example.com for further details.
Businesses and organizations are joining in the fun – check out a full list of who you’ll find below. There is still time to add your business or organization to that list, and bands are encouraged to apply to add music to the event. Learn the details here.
