tiny_home_alki

Have you heard the BIG news about tiny homes? These low-impact dwellings are all over the media and minds of people looking to live smaller. There is only so much room on this planet and the more space we give to nature, the cleaner our air, water, and soil will remain. With so much development going on around Seattle, it is a breath of fresh air to see companies like Seattle Tiny Homes bringing the reality of low-impact living to our community.

Seattle Tiny Homes is a featured sponsor of this year’s GreenLife area at Summer Fest. They will have a Tiny Home on display all three days of the event (July 8th, 9th, and 10th) and be giving a talk about what it’s like to Live Small:

About Seattle Tiny Homes:

The way you live in a tiny space is different from everyone else. So why settle for a home that’s not designed with you in mind? Since 2010, Seattle Tiny Homes has offered a full range of options to create the perfect tiny house for you. We completely customize your home to meet your specific goals and dreams, and build it to the the highest standards of quality to last a lifetime.

Seattle Tiny Homes specializes in tiny structures on wheels. We believe smaller abodes create serenity and simplicity, and are better for the environment.  Depending on location, you can use a tiny structure as a dwelling, a mother-in-law apartment, a retirement cottage, an extra bedroom for a college student, a home office, or a studio. All our completed structures are licensed as RV travel trailers. Learn more about us at www.seattletinyhomes.com.

Visit the West Seattle Nursery Garden Stage!

You probably already know, but if you don’t, the West Seattle Nursery and Garden Center is a wonderful place to get plantings, supplies and advice. They employ great people that are very knowledgeable about what to plant, where to plant, and when to plant it. This cool garden shop is sponsoring (and decorating!) the GreenLife Garden Stage this year.

Picture: fragrant hanging baskets, nice lush saplings, a billion 4″ plantings…and BEAUTIFUL music bellowing about! That’s what we’re picturing too! Come on by and visit, both the Nursery and the stage.

Meet Organic Grocer PCC at GreenLife July 8-10th!

If you are new to the area you may not know, but PCC Natural Markets is a great grocery store, we are very lucky to have them in the neighborhood. They have very conscientious buyers and by being a member and reading their rag, The Sound Consumer, I know their due diligence in regards to sustainable food practices. I trust them with my family’s health and am very happy to have them as a GreenLife area sponsor this year.

PCC will have a “Build Your Own Trailmix” booth which highlights how to combine nummies from the bulk section to create great tasting, energizing trail mixes.
