Seattle Seedling A blog by Stacy Brewer, a self-described "urban farmgirl," about eating locally and seasonally, and growing as much organic food as possible in her backyard. This blog documents her transformation into an enthusiastic cook and savvy urban farmer.

Sustainable Eats (Belvedere Terrace neighborhood) This blog represents my journey as an urban mom with two small kids going from supermarket to farmer-fresh food one step at a time. In 2009 I vow to re-channel my grocery money away from mono-crop farmers, processed food companies and animal feed lots. I will not buy foods from outside Washington state unless I have exhausted all local options and I will give up out of season foods. Keeping this blog is my way of chronicling my successes, failures and struggles and giving other local families ideas, encouragement and resources to make this same journey.

City Farm Northwest We sold our much-too-big house, started figuring out the bus system, pumped up the bicycle tires, and now we're on our way to building a new sustainable life in the city.

Mommyfrog's Blog (Bryant neighborhood) This blog is being written to explore and reflect on our family's journey toward making the earth a better place to live for the kids. I'm a working Mom with two young kids, and after the first one was born, I realized that not only could I make a difference in the world's environment for my precious little bundles, but I needed to for their sake. In the words of Margaret Mead, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." I'm just a Mom. Part of a family, block, community, and city. I have a vision for my kid's world, and it's not how I see our world is going. So here's my blog on my and my family's growth towards being thoughtful and committed citizens and stewards of our environment.
