We had two new microgrant applications recently. One was from Save Our Substations - an effort headed by Cass Turnbull of Plant Amnesty. Her hope is to keep Seattle City Light's surplus substations from being diverted to private us. She envisions keeping the properties in the public domain to use as open space. We worked with our neighbors to turn a surplus substation and an adjacent property into 6th Ave NW Pocket Park.
We loved her proposal and awarded her $500 for her efforts!
Do you have a dream about open space? Consider applying for our microgrant - it's an easy process. If you are aligned with our mission of creating parks habitat & community in NW Seattle, we would love to support you.
