Sustainable Renton June Happenings

happenings

Greetings Sustainable Renton followers!

We have some great things happening this month- We have the first of three Stone Soup Gatherings up at the farm this month, which we hope to see all of you at. This will be just like it sounds, if you have something to bring to the pot-do it and we will feast on the deliciousness that our community soup will offer up. I would also like to make a quick plug for the Sustainable Renton Study Group which is held on the 2nd Saturday of every month from 10am-12 pm. The Roots of Change curriculum is comprehensive and enlightening, the conversations and ideas that spring from the readings are life changing, and ultimately, we hope they are cathartic for our community. Come join us, it’s never too late.
