One of the great things about the Greater Seattle Area is the beautiful blend you get between the city and the great outdoors. Which is why it comes as no surprise that many of us are excited about the idea of bringing some of that nature a little closer to us by growing our own herbs, fruits, and vegetables. Luckily, having a green thumb in the city has never been easier - whether you choose a community or home garden or borrow someone else’s by u-picking or volunteering, there is a perfect urban garden for you.
It’s been three years since the expiration of a bold promise: King County’s 2005 10-year plan to end homelessness. As of January 2018, a total of 12,112 individuals are reported homeless, a 4 percent increase seen over the course of this past year. But here at TWIF, we’re not giving up.
As the sun starts to hang around more and more and the days get hotter, you might find yourself feeling a bit of envy for friends who escape to tropical beaches and poolside destinations.

What has always moved me about the various marches I’ve attended in Seattle, is the sense of community. While initially a march might seem representative of negative emotions – frustration, anger, disappointment, injustice – when you’re actually in the sea of others who are frustrated too, you are reminded that you are not alone. That while even the people walking right next to you might have differing beliefs, ideas, politics, and backgrounds, most are inherently good.
If you’re willing to venture out of your house, you’ll find Seattle has some places that’ll make you feel just as cozy outside of your home as you would inside. And of course, these places are great for doing one of the best activities possible during winter: reading a good book. So, grab a book and try instead heading outside of your home to experience a cozier, comfier, Seattle in the winter. Leave the rain and snow outside, and warm up at these places!
Wouldn't it be nice to be able to better understand the real impact you have with your day to day choices? That's what Taming Bigfoot, an upcoming competition in Seattle is all about - giving participants a real idea of how their actions affect CO2 emissions, all while competing to win prizes.
