Community Gardening & Banner Art Making
LOCATION CHANGE: We will meet at Got Green’s new community garden located on 19th Ave S. between Plum and Hill streets. See accessibility and location information below.
Join us for an evening of generative and creative projects as we weave the threads of our recent FJP meetings on Just Transition in local contexts. We will start out getting our hands in the dirt and gardening at Got Green’s new community garden! In preparation for our upcoming SLEE dinner in July, we will be painting banners together. While we work, we’ll continue our conversations on Just Transition and Just Circular Economy as this relates to food systems in Seattle.
We are so grateful to Kamal Patel, who facilitated a special interactive workshop and systems mapping exercise on Just Transition and Just Circular Economy with us last month. We encourage you to check out the digitized version of the systems map that we created with Kamal’s leadership. This is an interactive document, so feel free to add notes and comments. If you haven’t looked at the resources we’ve shared on Just Transition yet, check them out:
- Movement Generation Justice & Ecology Project’s Just Transition Zine, available on the web and to download. The zine is 32-pages long with visuals and is in English and Spanish.

FJP Meetings are a great way to get involved in CAGJ, and are held the 3rd Tuesday/month. (PLEASE NOTE there will be no July FJP Meeting!) New volunteers are invited to our orientation at 6pm: Please email us to let us know you're attending the orientation.
