Sustainable Burien’s next meeting will be a holiday potluck and roundtable discussion from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 11th at the Burien library.

“Bring something to share – food and your thoughts about Sustainable Burien and some possible directions for 2012,” reads an email. “We will have some utensils available, but it would be helpful if you could bring your own.”

The in January (Jan. 8th) a speaker will be talking about the “Tacoma plume,” the toxins in our soil from the Asarco plant in Tacoma that affects so many of us. The Department of Ecology is presenting a public information meeting (and asking for comments) about a cleanup plan on December 6th from 6:30-8:30 (read more details here) at the Des Moines Activity Center.

Also, don’t miss this month’s ‘Walk ‘n Talk’ this Sunday, Dec. 4th (details here):  Eric Mathison, editor of The Highline Times, will lead this month’s walk to Mathison Park.  Meet at the grassy knoll at Burien Town Square.

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.
