About Us

The goal of Sustainable Ballard is to help prepare ourselves and our community to sustain and thrive in a post-peak-oil future, by supporting and inspiring each other to build a healthy and joyful life that is environmentally, socially and personally sustainable. To achieve this resiliency, we believe some key ingredients are getting connected with our neighbors to strengthen the social fabric of the community, learning new skills, getting educated on sustainability related matters, building a local food supply and a local economy, and sharing resources.

We invite all of our Ballard neighbors and friends to become more connected with others in the community by participating in Sustainable Ballard activities, including learning opportunities, community service, resource sharing, social events, and more. When we engage, we become part of creating the thriving community and lifestyle we want and need.
