New Year Seed Community Celan Up!

A New Year makes one motivated to kick off a fresh beginning,
or at least I had resolved to write about all the classes and events we had,
but January came and went already. Oh, boy…

Now it was just Chinese New Year here,
so here’s a fresh look at a tradition we hold dear to our heart,
as humble and small-scale as it may seem.

Sunday, Jan. 2

The year’s first Seed Community Cleanup (SCC) day met with a rather cold morning. There was a lot of trash for us to be dealt with after the holidays. We felt energized and ready for the task.

The volunteers were Vladcka, a ceramic artist who moved to the U.S. from Czech Republic, and a SCC regular, and there was newcomer Amanda, an actress who just moved to Santa Monica from New York. She is originally from Australia and a big fan of Seed. By the time we finished the entire block we were all warmed up and we felt as though our souls got cleaned up, too. Not too many people know about our little act in the eco-green movement, but we have welcomed volunteers on Sundays since Seed opened two years ago. We looked back and counted 62 times! Still, each time we feel it’s only a beginning. There is so much more we can do to help the earth.

The next SCC is on Sunday, Feb. 13. Hope you can join us (and get 10% off from Seed’s lunch)
