Ballard Farmers Market Gleaning
Mar 24 @ 2:45 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.

Meaningful Movies : Sustainable Ballard Presents “Eating Animals”
Mar 31 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Eating Animals is the feature-length documentary adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer’s critically acclaimed book of the same name. The film reveals through intimate narratives what has happened to our country in the past 40 years as we have moved away from traditional farming communities to massive industrial farming complexes that produce a seemingly endless supply of so-called “cheap” meat, eggs, and dairy. What starts out as a simple question – where does our meat come from? – quickly takes us down the rabbit hole of today’s industrial animal agriculture and becomes an exploration of the ultimate stakes of eating animals, the destruction of farming, and the complete unwinding of the American mythos.

Please join Meaningful Movies : Sustainable Ballard on Sunday, March 31st @ 7:30pm at Peddler Brewing, 1514 NW Leary Way, for a screening of Eating Animals. We invite you to stay after the film for a presentation and discussion led by Rachel Bjork.

Rachel Bjork was born and raised in Seattle. As a city dweller, she didn’t start considering or learning about what happens to animals raised for food until she was out of college. Already a vegetarian for
health reasons, she soon because a vegan after finding out what happens to dairy cows and chickens that are used to lay eggs. Once she realized the full extent of how horrible animal agriculture is for all animals, the planet, and the people working in those industries, she knew she needed to get active. In 2000, she got involved with the local group, Northwest Animal Rights Network (NARN), and she has been an active member ever since. She has served on the Board of Directors for many years and is currently the Board President. Rachel feels compelled to fight for animals – human and non-human ones. Animals Rights Advocacy is where she has found her passion, her joy, and her purpose.

Meaningful Movies : Sustainable Ballard Screenings are free, but we gratefully accept donations to help offset the costs of acquiring the films we screen. Suggestion: $5.
