What is a skills fair? A day of sharing practical skills with our neighbors – we will have short workshops on a wide variety of skills, from knitting to basic carpentry to soil building. The day will include a homemade soup luncheon with speakers Anne Biklé and David Montgomery, authors of The Hidden Half of Nature.

Where? Meadowbrook Community Center, 10517 35th Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98125

Why? Building resilience – If we can build a neighborhood where we know how to take care of our needs close to home – we are more likely to do well in difficult times Growing Community – If we work together, share resources, eat and celebrate together, our community fabric grows stronger! Reducing waste – if we can repurpose that old sweater, it stays out of the landfill.
