Holiday Party & Barter Fair
Dec 11 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Sustainable Ballard is hosting a community holiday barter and celebration on Sunday, December 11 from 4 to 7pm.   This event brings together the community, encourages creativity and sharing, creates friendships and offers people a relaxing and enjoyable alternative to the more commercial holiday gift buying experience.

There will be food, drinks and music!

What could you make for the barter fair and holiday party?  Do you make jam? chocolates? pies?  cheese?  beer?  Do you make jewelry? do you knit?  Does your pig find truffles in the forest?  Can you walk a neighbor’s dog?  House sit?  Baby sit?  would you teach fiddling?  or cooking?  Any of these and other things and services like it would be great to trade at the Barter Fair!

  • hand-made scarves, jewelry and pottery
  • home-grown or foraged produce
  • home-made jams, truffles, dried fruit, granola, beer and other delectable goodies
