From Sustainable Ballard
Monthly Gathering Helpers
SB hosts a community Monthly Gathering on the fourth Monday of every month, at Sunset Hill Community Club. Help set up chairs, refreshments, info table and AV equipment before the gathering, and/or greet people as they come in. An easy, simple and quick way to help out.
Start the Ballard Tool Library!
Ballard can use it's own Tool Library! Sustainable West Seattle, who has created and been operating a successful tool library for a while, has offered to share all of their how-to knowledge, experience and best practices! You won't need to reinvent this wheel! If you've got some time and energy to get this project started (you won't do it all alone!), let us know!
Help Protect Puget Sound With the Tox-Ick Program!
Don’t Feed the Tox-Ick Monster! A great new program to educate the community about how to avoid runoff water pollution that hurts aquatic life in our Puget Sound. Geared at people of all ages. Team up with Liz Dunigan, program leader, in planning, developing and presenting this professionally tailored program. A great community education opportunity!
Help publicize our events and activities by sending information to other organizations, posting in online community calendars, and/or by creating and hanging flyers on bulletin boards around Ballard. We've got a list of online locations to get you started and will supply the flyers and even a list of places to go. We are also looking for a Communications and Publicity Coordinator to design a publicity strategy, and coordinate and oversee our publicity efforts.
Adapt this Flyer to help Ballard Be Prepared In Case of Zombie Attack
Can you help adapt and produce this great emergency preparedness flyer generously shared with us by Sustainable Wallingford?
At-large Board Member - Admin Team
Join the team that keeps things going behind the scenes! As part of the Admin Team you'll learn about the many things required for running a non-profit, make a big difference helping out with some of them, participate in discussions, planning and decision making, and learn about the Dynamic Governance way of running meetings and making decisions. The Admin Team meets once a month (2nd Monday) for about two hours. No life long commitment here... If this sounds interesting, come in and try it and see what you think! Your input, energy and organizational skills are valued and needed!
We are looking for a detail oriented, wiki-savvy (or willing to learn) volunteer (or otherwise tech inclined) to help spiff-up and update our wiki pages. Work from home at your own flexible schedule.
Join a team of volunteers who organize a monthly "meaningful movie" night for the community. Think thought-provoking movie, snacks, and good discussion. Help with choosing the movie, taking care of logistics for the event, setting up, getting and selling snacks, welcoming people, leading discussion, and/or cleaning up at the end. Fun and easy!
Assistant Coordinator for SB Knitters For the Homeless
Jody is looking for someone to help her coordinate and occasionally run a monthly meeting for beginner knitters who will get together at a coffee shop to learn patterns and knit for the unhoused members of our community.
Secretary of the Board
Neat and organized? As Secretary of the SB Board, you'll be part of the Admin Team, help with logistics for quarterly Board meetings, take and edit meeting notes (about 1/month), send out reminders for newsletter content, and take on occasional other tasks as needed.
If you enjoy working with volunteers and have organization and coordination skills, SB can use your help as a Volunteer Coordinator. Please see our description of role responsibilities for more details.
Bi-Monthly Newsletter Helper
We would love for you to help us get our bi-monthly newsletter out to our nearly 1300 members twice per month. Send reminders for content, keep track of writers for the intro, prepare the newsletter to be sent. Some experience with html and wiki formatting would be helpful, but we can train.
If you can help with programming, design or just data transfer, please contact Fulvio Casali
Research on Sustainable, Local Food
The Food and Health Guild seeks volunteer/s excited about sustainable, local food to research and update the guild's wiki page with links to recent books, articles, postings, websites, films, book and film reviews, etc. For more information, please contact Jennifer
