Over the last three days, we have had significant interest in the West Seattle Timebank at Summer Fest. Community members from all over the city have stopped to talk, join the Timebank, or even just take a pamphlet. I have witnessed instant connections, new ideas for our Timebank, and community members who are grateful to hear of an organization based around time and talents right in their backyard.
We gained a new partner, Urban Homestead Foundation, and were featured with them on the West Seattle Blog. UHF is a group of West Seattleites who are working to save a piece of city owned land to be used as a community education and gathering center. This was their first outreach event – watch for opportunities to volunteer your time and talents as their project progresses.
To our timebank members who volunteered at our booth, THANK YOU! Your enthusiasm is infectious and your unwavering commitment to growing your timebank is influential (and keeps some of us sane!).
We wish to thank Sustainable West Seattle for orchestrating the seventh year of Greenlife! We look forward to participation in this, and other events, with you. To all our partners we saw throughout this weekend, we are grateful for the connections we continue to make.
