Dear friends, allies and supporters,
Greetings from the men, women and children of Nickelsville.
Last Saturday, June 11th, we joined our sisters from WHEEL at the
installation ceremony of the first 15 leaves of remembrance for
homeless people who died outside or by violence.
The event was held on 2nd and Bell where the Leaves were embedded in
the sidewalk. Many attended. It was bitter sweet that one of the
leaves casted was for Cassie Phillips, a Nickelsville co-founder and
We are having our open house this coming Saturday, June 18th between 2
and 6 pm. There will be tours, speeches, music and a potluck at 5pm.
We will also be showing our first completed simple, sturdy, sleeping
structure! We are located at 7116 W Marginal Way SW at 2nd Ave SW. We
hope to see you there!
Nickelsville is seeking an Eco friendly solution to vegetation growth,
particularly of the blackberry and scotch broom variety, at our camp.
That is why we are seriously considering adopting a pet goat. If
anyone has has any experience with goat keeping and grooming, please
feel free to email our staff person sc...@nickelsvilleseattle.org
