Bees, Bats and Bugs friendly to the sustainable garden.

 

The Roosevelt Sustainability Group’s vision is to make Roosevelt  a Seattle neighborhood of exemplary sustainable practices. Sustainable strategies include: energy efficiency, waste reduction, renewable energy, air quality, water quality, soil health, urban agriculture and neighborhood livability.

There will be a lecture on Tuesday, April 27, 2010 from 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM in room 242 of Roosevelt High School. This lecture is entitled Bees, Bats and Bugs : Secrets for a Sustainable Garden.

Bee

BatEvan Sugden of Entomo-Logic will share how to welcome bees in your yard.

Michelle Noe, president of Bats Northwest, will tell you how to build a bat house, and more.

Marty Wingate from Seattle Tilth will cover bugs - how to encourage the good and control the bad using sustainable methods.

The Roosevelt Sustainability Group is a part of the Roosevelt Neighborhood Association. You need not be a member to attend this lecture. The group likes to think locally and act locally in hopes of influencing the greater community in a positive manner. Grass roots efforts like this should be started in every neighborhood. Wherever two or more people get together they should be cognizant of their environment and be interested in improving rather than using the space they occupy.  

Issues such as carbon footprint, the building environment, transportation, and local food production and use a but a few of the area of interest of this group. Come to the meeting on the 27th and be a part of making Roosevelt, Seattle, and the world a better place to live.

If you would like to live in a community like this, please give me a call.

Glenn this is timely----I inspected a house with two bat houses just today----took me a while to figure out what they were until I saw the bats up in them :)

Chralie - We have some Mason Bee houses at our place and I suspect we'll have a batcave or two shortly after the meeting.
