The Big Green is back! Sponsored by BECU and Seattle City Light, Sustainable Seattle and Seattle Greendrinks are teaming up with Sustainable NE Seattle to bring even more hands-on fun to this annual community picnic and festival.

When you arrive to Hunter Farm Gathering Place on August 12, there will be opportunities for fun - and networking - at every corner. From making your own button to your own birdhouse, we promise you won't leave empty handed - you could even get your bike all fixed up! Organizations and businesses will be helping you green your home from the inside out - including laundry soap, gardening tips, energy efficiency, and more. Have dull knives? Bring them to the sharpening station!

Businesses and organizations are joining in the fun - check out a full list of who you'll find below.

As the family-friendly Greendrinks event, there will be plenty for the kiddos too. With games, urban farm animals, and sweet treats provided by Snoqualmie Ice Cream and others - it is really a can't miss evening out. Plus there will be pizza slices (including vegan and gluten free!) from Wicked Pies and snacks from Chaco Canyon. Picnicking is encouraged!

And of course - the evening would not be complete without pours from Sierra Nevada, cans from Fremont Brewing, sips from Wilridge Winery, and music to soundtrack the evening. Back again from last year, we'll have folk rock bassist and singer Julian Stocking, check out his work here and here. Also joining the night will be Podorythmie, a French Canadian all women's band with song, percussion step dancing and crankies (a moving panorama story box, and stitched from fabric and hand-cranked - created especially for Sustainable Seattle).

Thank you to Silicon Energy for powering the evening with solar energy and to Recology Cleanscapes for making sure waste goes to the right place!
