Want to be one of 40 people that really helps Puget Sound?
Sustainable West Seattle will award a $1000 grant if that many adults attend their Oct. 10 event
Sustainable West Seattle (SWS) has put out a challenge to get 40 people to attend a 1 hour presentation to help the Earth Project earn $1000 for their garden and future water catchment system.
On Monday October 10th, 7-8PM, at Pathfinder K-8 School at 1901 SW Genesee St , all that's required is that 40 people show up for the one-hour presentation on What you can do to save Puget Sound. If 40 attendees make it – SWS will award the school $1,000 to be spent toward a water catchment system for the Pathfinder Garden.
On top of the grant, SWS will also provide free pizza for the event. One catch? They must be adults in attendance.
SWS's grant allows for $1000 in stormwater equipment to be given as "prizes" at each presentation. In this case the money would be set aside for a system that would hold 2500 to 5000 gallons of rainwater.
The garden at Pathfinder K-8 has become an asset for learning about health and the natural world.
The presentation will teach audience members about the problem of polluted runoff, and the most important things we can do to reduce it. By adopting simple lifestyle choices, we can all work together toward building a healthy Puget Sound with robust orca, salmon and shellfish populations that support or economy, our health, and our spirits.
