All are invited to our annual Holiday Party and Barter Fair – Dec 11

Sustainable Ballard is hosting a community holiday barter and celebration on Sunday, December 11 from 4 to 7 pm at Royal Drummer Cafe.   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!  This is a great opportunity for community members to find out more about Sustainable Ballard, meet people who have been involved for some time, and make new friends.

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!
