Followed by a march to Terminal 5 to encourage the Port to rescind the lease agreement with Shell Oil through Foss Marine.
This is a special All Walk Encouragement Rally not only because it is Easter Sunday but because we are going to have our voice heard on the Port of Seattle’s decision to store Shell Oil Companies Arctic Drilling Equipment in West Seattle at the port’s Terminal 5.
After the All Walk Encouragement Rally in the Alaska Junction from noon-1pm we will gather to peacefully march to the entrance of Terminal 5 at Chelan St. and West Marginal Way. There we will be holding a rally with speakers from various groups along with music. Easter Walk Flyer
This march is sponsored by The Green Party of Seattle and supported by 350.org, Backbone and Greenpeace.
Second Use Building Materials and NOVO Painting are teaming up to combat the issue of used paint in Seattle. Without a paint stewardship program, Washington residents are forced to dry leftover latex paint with kitty litter or paint hardener and toss it in the landfill.
In effort to divert leftover latex paint from the landfill and get it into the hands of people that need it, Second Use and NOVO Painting are hosting a Used Paint Drive on March 28th from 10-4 at the Second Use Store in SODO.
There is no cost for individuals to drop off leftover paint, but there are the following requirements:
Paint must be in good, reusable condition. Second Use reserves the right to turn away unsatisfactory paint
Paint must be free of any solid matter
Paint must be latex
Paint will only be accepted between 10-4 on March 28th.
This is a one-time event, and paint donations outside of those hours will be refused.
In an effort to allow the most households to participate, we cannot accept quantities exceeding 25 gallons
Individuals or community groups interested in free used paint can contact firstname.lastname@example.org to receive more information about paint distribution.
Please help our community responsibly dispose of their paint by sharing this event. Do not hesitate to contact us for additional information.
You can take the survey here:
In response to recent and prolonged debates about parking in our area, the West Seattle Transportation Coalition (WSTC) is conducting a basic survey about parking. They are taking this survey to aggregate and then publish the results in a report to the public. At this time they have no position on the parking questions and are doing this to benefit all interested parties with some new data.
The survey will run until Thursday, March 26, 2015 at 12:00pm PST. They hope to publish the results of this survey with additional information in a few weeks’ time past that. Please go ahead and share this with anyone you think may be interested.
What a cool project, Urban Flex Farms is a collective of “micro-farms” in West Seattle that provide as-fresh-as-you-can-get produce delivered right to your home. Urban Flex Farms partners with homeowners in WS to turn yards into micro-farm sites that grow fresh vegetables, fruits, and herbs. They have extended their Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Early Bird Special until March 15th. Here’s whats in the box when you join the CSA:
