Ballard Farmers Market Gleaning
Apr 22 @ 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm

The generous farmers at the Ballard Sunday Farmers Market donate fresh produce for our hungry neighbors.  Our Market Gleaning project is looking for volunteers to help collect the produce from these generous farmers every Sunday for delivery to the Ballard Food Bank.

If you are interested in helping with the gleaning project on Sundays, 3:30pm – 5:00pm, contact Jennifer.

Teams of gleaners rotate so the commitment is no more than once per month, 3:30-5pm, on Sundays.  Early Spring is a great time to join up — it’s a little slower and less hectic, and you can learn the ropes before things pick up again as we move into warm weather.  The more volunteer teams we have, the less often each team will be put onto the schedule — many hands make light work!

Interested?  Please contact Jennifer for more information or to sign up.

Get Plugged Into Ballard!
May 2 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

As our Ballard neighborhood grows and transforms, there is an ever-pressing need to maintain a sense of community.  A question often heard from new neighbors is “how do I become more involved in my community?”  More than ever, there are people living in the neighborhood looking for ways to meet people and have a positive impact on the neighborhood and surrounding communities.

Sustainable Ballard has partnered with the Ballard Alliance (Visit Ballard) to host a quarterly event that offers our residents, business owners and their employees a chance to meet one another and learn more about the ways in which they can become more involved and engaged in the Ballard Community.  In addition to Sustainable Ballard and Visit Ballard, other non-profits and community groups you can learn more about at the May 2 event are:

Please join us for an evening to mix, mingle and share a pint with your neighbors on Wednesday, May 2nd from 6pm until 8pm, at Obec Brewing.

A special thanks to our sponsors for helping us host this event!  Obec Brewing | Lux Pot Shop
