Sustainable Burien meeting at The B-Patch
The good folks at Sustainable Burien want everyone to know that their next meeting, set for this Sunday, Aug. 8th, is being moved from the usual spot at the new library to Burien’s Community Gardens, located at 437 SW 144th Street. The meeting is Sunday, Aug. 8th from 2pm to 4pm; doors open at 1:30pm. 2pm until 4pm
This will be a chance to visit the new community garden and attend SuBu's monthly meeting.
Their speaker will be Jeanne Johnson from the Environmental Coalition of South Seattle, and according to an email:
“She’ll have free green cleaning products to give away to everyone. She’ll explain how to read the labels on cleaning products and other chemicals so you know what’s really in them and can make an educated choice about what works for you. She’ll have information about how you can take care of your home using green products; cheaply, easily and effectively. She has some surprising information about what personal care products are actually classified as hazardous waste, and will have information about how to research the products you use and find alternatives if you want to. And she’ll have copies of the Grow Safe/Grow Green Guide for yard and garden care, an excellent guide that lists various products and explains what they are, how safe they are [or aren't] and helps you pick what will work best for you.”
