PubliCalendar: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Today's picks for civic nerds
National Secondhand Wardrobe Day
Okay so this is an unofficial holiday, but it reminded us of an event that is happening in a couple of weeks. The Seattle Children's Consignment Event is open for registration. What better way to reuse and recycle than by consigning outgrown clothes.
The public event is September 6 & 7, but volunteers, consignors, new moms, and military families can register now for an exclusive presales on September 5 & 6. Less waste is always a good idea.
Seattle Children's Consignment Event, Sat, Sept 6, 11am–5pm and Sun, Sept 7, 9am–3pm, Seattle Center Pavilion, 305 Harrison St, Seattle Center
Central Area Neighborhood Greenway Drop-In Session
Since 23rd Avenue is a heavily used route in the Central District, it is not always the safest or most comfortable street for pedestrians and cyclists. The Central Area Neighborhood Greenway plan that is being implemented for 24th and 25th Avenues is still open for alternative suggestions, and the preferred options for phase two of the project will be presented in this meeting. PubliCola's Josh Feit breaks down the greenway project—sans bike lane.
Central Area Neighborhood Greenway Drop-In Session, Tue, Aug 26, 4:30–6:30pm, Garfield Community Center, 2323 E Cherry St, free
21 Acres: Pick and Prepare
Each class in the Pick and Prepare course on farm-to-table dining begins with a lesson and ends with food preparation. The first class in certified organic farm 21 Acres' three-week course defines sustainable farming techniques and adds a roasted summer salad into your dinner-making repertoire.
Classes two and three take place September 3 & 10; expect discussions of factory farming and menus with seasonal soup and preserves.
21 Acres: Pick and Prepare, Wed, Aug 27, 6:30–8:30pm, 21 Acres, 13701 NE 171st St, Woodinville, $50–$60
