Help plan the next use of the Columbia School
Meeting on Saturday, March 29 at 10am at Tutta Bella.
In the summer of 2009, the New School will leave the Columbia School for its new facility in Rainier Beach. For the first time in more than 100 years, a public school may not be operating in the heart of Columbia City. Over the coming year, the Seattle School District will likely decide what to do with the soon-to-be-vacant Columbia School building.
The community has founded Friends of Columbia School (FoCS)… Read more.

Learn to grow organic vegetables and fruits in your own yard — healthy for you, for your kids, and for the planet, and satisfying for your soul!

|There are two new neighborhood videos via the Seattle Channel:|
|Mariana has updated the SSCPC agenda.|
|Carrie has updated the front page of Sustainable South Seattle.|
|This week Columbia Citizens got a makeover. It's slimmer, trimmer, and hopefully even easier to read and to use. Basic web design ain't our strong suit, so if you see anything that's out of whack, please point it out.|
