Sustainable Burien’s Sunday Meeting Moved To Community Garden
The good folks at Sustainable Burien want our Readers to know that their next meeting, set for this Sunday, Aug. 8th, is being moved from the usual spot at the new library to Burien’s Community Gardens, located at 437 SW 144th Street.
This will be a chance to visit the new community garden and attend their monthly meeting.
Their speaker will be Jeanne Johnson from the Environmental Coalition of South Seattle, and according to an email:
“She’ll have free green cleaning products to give away to everyone. She’ll explain how to read the labels on cleaning products and other chemicals so you know what’s really in them and can make an educated choice about what works for you. She’ll have information about how you can take care of your home using green products; cheaply, easily and effectively. She has some surprising information about what personal care products are actually classified as hazardous waste, and will have information about how to research the products you use and find alternatives if you want to. And she’ll have copies of the Grow Safe/Grow Green Guide for yard and garden care, an excellent guide that lists various products and explains what they are, how safe they are [or aren’t] and helps you pick what will work best for you.”
“We weren’t able to get our usual room at the library, so this is a new location.
Parking is available in the lot of the old Community Center, access off of 144th right next to the B-Patch Community Garden.
Here are the details:

From their website:
Sustainable Burien is an organization started in January of 2008. We recognize the need to promote and participate in the creation of a sustainable community in Burien. We invite all residents and businesses to participate in creating a sustainable local community by sharing their ideas, passions, knowledge and talents.
At our meetings we will be collecting burned out CFL (Compact Fluorescent Light) bulbs and dead rechargable batteries. People are welcome to bring any extra food items [produce from your garden, fruit from your trees, etc.] that they have and barter with others. Also bring any coupons for food that you get in the mail or from the newspaper, we’ll pass them on to the food bank, who can make good use of them.
Gatherings are held on the second Sunday of each month, – from 2:00 – 4:00PM at the (new) KCLS Burien Library (doors open at 1:30PM). For more information, go to: http://www.sustainableburien.org.
