About Joann

A Seattlite since 1985, I have loved living in the PNW with its beauty, rain, and appreciation for the outdoors. Growing up in Ann Arbor, MI, my parents instilled conservation of resources and thrift into my upbringing. In 2008 I saw “An Inconvenient Truth” and decided I needed to work with others concerned about climate change. At that point I met Susan Gregory and Carol Kibble, both wanting to do something within the community. We organized a meeting where 45 other people concerned about the future showed up to discuss what local actions we could all do as a community. Sustainable NE Seattle (now Seattle REconomy) was born with the first projects around food security through urban gardening, veggie garden tours, and community kitchens. Five years later the NE Seattle Tool Library was started. It is the best thing we have ever done for the community and the planet.

Seattle REconomy is a 501c3 tax-exempt nonprofit dedicated to reducing our community’s footprint and increasing our climate resilience through education and practical solutions.
