Below is an appeal for help with the NW EcoBuilding Guild’s 2nd Annual Seattle Green Home Tour. If you are interested in being involed in the realm of sustainability in the Pacific Northwest, here’s your opportunity!

As many of you know, we are hosting two sites in the NW EcoBuiding Guild’s 2nd annual Seattle Green Home Tour. A volunteer was trying to find greeters for all the sites but has fallen significantly short of the total number the tour needs - so I am making a special call out to my friends and those connected to other networks that might be able to help staff my greeters for my sites.  

A greeter is someone who welcomes participants to the site, orients them of experts or activities within the home, ensures participants have signed the tour liability waiver (über important! by checking for an orange wristband and/or having them sign the waiver), and similar shtick. No experience IN green building necessary, just a passion to encourage and promote it!

It’s a great way to become more intimately involved with the tour and meet some great people along the way.

Both our sites are in West Seattle. Our house on Webster and 31st/32nd and one on Findlay, just west of California. 


Open Shifts are:

Saturday, Apr 21, 9:30-1

Saturday, Apr 21, 1-4

Saturday, Apr 21, 1-4 

Sunday, Apr 22, 9:30-1 

Sunday, Apr 22, 9:30-1 

Sunday, Apr 22, 1-4

Sunday, Apr 22, 1-4

No, I didn’t accidentally duplicate dates/times - remember we’ve got TWO sites on the tour! Also would happily take one person to do a whole day. It’s really not painful, there are several experts on each site so you can learn all sorts of great things, plus we get busy with participants, so lots of people to engage from the get-go.

If you can’t help out but know someone who might be interested, send ‘em my way! Thanks!!

There is a volunteer orientation party this coming Tuesday, Apr 17, 6pm… which, as a volunteer, you’d be welcome to attend!

(and other sites need help too, so if you/your friend doesn’t want to come to West Seattle, still connect with me and I’ll get y’all in the loop).
