Sustainable West Seattle awards grant money to 3 projects

March 18, 2013 at 7:41 pm | In Sustainable West Seattle, West Seattle news | 2 Comments

From WSB contributing reporter Keri DeTore at tonight’s Sustainable West Seattle community forum: SWS has just announced not just one winner from its new grant program, but three. Keri says the newly renamed Delridge Grocery group received $1,000 – you can congratulate them at their membership “launch/lunch” event next Saturday – and another $1,000 was split by the Time Bank of West Seattle and DIY Bikes applicants, after SWS announced it had extra money to give. The three were among six applicants for the new program; in addition to making their pitches to the group, they also were rated in an online survey open to community participation. Main topic of tonight’s event is “gardening with nature”; we’ll have Keri’s report on that later – the forum continues at the SSCC Horticulture Center and Community Orchard of West Seattle until 9.

  2. I was happy you posted the survey here, WSB. I enjoyed reading about the different projects and to understand the criteria SWS uses to make their decision.
