Sustainable Capitol Hill is a network of neighbors, businesses and community groups dedicated to making Capitol Hill a sustainable community and a vital neighborhood - one with strong connections between people, place and the local ecosystem.

We host monthly events  for folks to meet neighbors, learn a skill, and become just a bit more sustainable along the way.  We are also currently heading two main projects: The Capitol Hill Tool Library and the Fruit Gleaning project.

The Capitol Hill Tool Library is similar to a book library, but will loan tools instead of books. Imagine borrowing a food dehydrator, a ladder, a fishing rod, much like you would borrow a book from SPL. Imagine learning how to fix your broken toaster, building a worm bin, preserving your summer bounty. Enjoy a local community of knowledgeable fixers, tool lending, and workshops at the new Capitol Hill Tool Library. The CHTL is due to open in the Fall of 2015.

We are also heading a Fruit Gleaning project. Capitol Hill is home to many fruit trees that are not always fully harvested by their owners. Sustainable Capitol Hill is partnering with these owners to harvest the fruit that would otherwise go to waste, while creating a mess on the sidewalk. This fruit is donated to food banks in the area, to help provide fresh produce for the food insecure.
