We had a great time last Friday at the Green Seattle Partnership Park(ing) Day spot. We had a prime location downtown right next to the Cascade Agenda Cities Program, Cascade Bicycle Club, Transportation Choices, and Zip Car. Thanks to everyone who stopped by!
We promoted Green Seattle Day (Nov. 7th), talked to people about public space and urban forests, played bean bags, and hung out in a tiny urban oasis on 1st Avenue. Check out the link to a video of Andrea getting interviewed for the news!
The KOMO reporter couldn’t resist playing a little bean bags with us.
Click here for the clip of Andrea getting interviewed! (the interview was a lot longer than the tiny clip that made it onto tv . . . she was very on-message)
For more info on park(ing) day, and photos from spots around the world, check out their official website.
