July 20, 2014 - Fruit Tree Gleaning

Capitol Hill is home to many fruit trees that are not always fully harvested by their owners. Sustainable Capitol Hill is partnering with these owners to harvest the fruit that would otherwise go to waste. This fruit is donated to food banks in the area, to help provide fresh produce for the food insecure. Join us as we glean the fruit from a tree near Volunteer Park. Please RSVP to get the exact address of the meetup.

August 19, 2014 - Tool Library Building

We will be tabling at the 4th of July Picnic at Cal Anderson. Come see our bicycle powered surprise activity, as well as our fruit tree picking activity.

October 6, 2014 6:30pm - Bike Ride with Seattle Neighborhood Greenways

In conjunction with Seattle Neighborhood Greenways, we’ll be biking the Greenways and Protected Bikeways of Capitol Hill. If you’ve ever wanted to bike commute, but have been afraid to take to the streets on your bike, dip your toes in with this biking event. We’ll cover the basics of defensive and street-wise biking, before hitting the road as a group to get you used to biking around town. If you’re an old pro, come to see the new bikeway paths! See our Calendar, Meetup page, and Facebook page for more detail and RSVP.

Our Current Projects

Fundamentally, we believe that there is no one solution to creating a sustainable society. Consequently, we seek a diversity of strategies and actions to improve our neighborhood. Below are a list of some of our ongoing projects; we encourage you to contact us if you would like to join in one of these groups or have other ideas or interests.
