More meaning, less stuff
Every holiday season our problem with stuff is made abundantly clear. This year, let's try for an abundance of joy, reflection and family rather than shopping, spending and frenzied preparation. We've put together some great local and national resources to help. We'd love to hear and see what you are doing! Join us this Sunday at our Annual Holiday Party and share your ideas or drop us a line if you can't make it. Together, we can build lives filled with more meaning and less stuff. 

Come celebrate the holidays with us! - Dec. 6

Sustainable Ballard's 10th Annual Holiday Party and Barter Fair is Sunday, December 6 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Come partake of appetizers and drinks from Ballard businesses while bartering and enjoying time with our neighbors.


Just $650 to go to complete the 5th tiny house!

Nickelsville-Ballard has moved in and thanks to the generosity of so many, we have raised enough to pay for four tiny houses and three-quarters of another! Please donate to help provide safe structures for people who would otherwise be living in tents.


'Menu for the Future' discussion group has formed - just one space left!

We’re sponsoring a discussion group of the Northwest Earth Institute course, "Menu for the Future: Food and Sustainability", and one spot remains! The group will meet on six Mondays at 7:30 p.m. starting in January.


Meaningful Movies is partnering with Sustainable Ballard!

The Meaningful Movies Project is a non-profit organization that screens free documentaries to raise awareness, encourage dialogue and create positive change. The first screening in Ballard will be on January 31. Interested in helping out? Our next volunteer meeting is Dec. 7.


Knitting for Nickelsville-Ballard

Sustainable Ballard Knitters for the Homeless continue to meet every 2nd Friday. Recently, the group has made two deliveries to our new neighbors at Nickelsville-Ballard. We’re already experiencing very cold temps and the need is great. All knitters are welcome!
