February Meeting: Field Trip to a Developing Sustainable Garden

Posted January 29th, 2012 in Community, Upcoming Events by subuadmin

Sustainable Burien Gathering
Sunday, February 12, 2012
A developing sustainable garden/farm located in Burien (call 243-9366 for address)
2:00pm – 4:00pm

FIELD TRIP TO A DEVELOPING SUSTAINABLE GARDEN
Rather than having our regular monthly meeting at the library on February 12th, we will be gathering at the private home of two of our members.  They have created many raised beds, planted berries and fruit trees, built a green house/chicken coop, and have been experimenting with beekeeping.  We will be learning pruning techniques with Bill Wanless of Brooke/Wanless Gardens.  He will demonstrate how to prune new and old fruit trees and shrubs.  We will also have a biochar stove demonstration.  Come and see what you may be able to create in your own garden.
Other Upcoming Events:
Bird Count – Feb 17-20.  Some SuBu members will be participating in the Great Backyard Bird Count, and we invite others to join in the activity.  It’s simple to do and only takes 15 minutes!  Here’s a link: http://www.birdsource.org/gbbc/howto.html
Our March meeting will be on March 18th.  It will be held on the 3rd Sunday rather than the 2nd, and will be a joint presentation by Sustainable Burien and Environmental Science Center on Rain Gardens and Low Impact Development.  We will be sending out detailed information soon.

Burien’s Walk ‘N Talk To Build Community

Posted August 2nd, 2011 in Community, Upcoming Events by subuadmin

This article was featured on the B-Town Blog this morning and looks like an excellent way to build community! Visit the Burien Walk ‘N Talk article at the B-Town Blog for more information.

Burien’s first-ever ‘Walk-n-Talk,’ will start this Sunday, Aug. 7th, beginning at 2 p.m. at Town Square, then continue the first Sunday of every month.

Meant to inspire locals to meet up, then walk and talk while enjoying the sights of Burien, as well as local businesses or whatever else participants encounter, this is another new, innovative, artist-inspired idea.

“Put on your comfy shoes and come for a casual Walk-n-Talk with friends and neighbors,” reads a press release. “On the first Sunday of every month, meet up at Burien Town Square with friends, old and new. Enjoy conversations and a walk through town. Grab a local coffee or snack before or after your stroll.”

WHAT: Burien’s first-ever ‘Walk N Talk’ begins this Sunday, Aug. 7th.

WHEN: First Sunday of every month; meet at 2 p.m., then start walking at 2:15 p.m.

WHERE: Start at Burien Town Square; then take a 2.25 mile loop around Lake Burien and back to Town Square.
