Hot Volunteer Opportunities


Volunteers at our 4th Annual Festival

Help with the Edible Garden Tour: The 6th Annual Edible Garden Tour is coming up.  If you are interested in helping find sites and plan for the event, please contact Paula.

Help Start the Ballard Tool Library:  We’d love to see a Tool Library in Ballard.  Sustainable West Seattle has been operating a successful tool library and has offered to share their knowledge, experience and best practices!   We won’t need to reinvent this wheel! If you’ve got some time and energy right now, join the team to get this project started! Contact Jenny today.

Join the Farmers Market Gleaning Team:   Help reduce waste and feed the needy at the same time by collecting donated leftover produce from the Ballard Farmers Market and delivering to the Ballard Food Bank three blocks away.  Once a month rotation.  For more info contact Paula.

Publicity Help:  Help publicize our events and activities by sending information to other organizations, posting in online community calendars, and/or by hanging flyers on bulletin boards around Ballard. We’ll supply you with the text for online postings or the flyers for physical posting and a list of locations to get you started. Contact Eric if you are interested in helping get the word out about our latest activities.

Information Technology:  If you can help with programming, design or just data transfer, please contact Jodi Newton.


THANK YOU to our 2013 volunteers!  Sustainable Ballard is sustainable because of YOU!
