Sustainable SR holds hack

Sustainable Scripps Ranch (SSR) will host its first Sustainability Hack on Sunday, April 15 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Scripps Ranch Community Center, 11885 Cypress Canyon Road. The purpose is to share ideas and sources for sustainable living.

SSR is calling for entrants to show and tell their favorite tricks and tools for saving water, energy, or time and for building stronger community connections in Scripps Ranch. Volunteers to help run the event are also welcome.

Categories for the event include Food & Water, Transportation & Energy and Repair & Re-using. SSR would like residents to bring anything to share and demonstrate during this event.

Folks can bring anything they’d like to pass on to others, and take home what they can use, according to SSR member Suha Chari. She said she hopes to bring a solar cooker that she made and will make some quick tasty snacks, and show how it works.

Plants, seeds, organic homemade snacks, recipes to try, pots, used books, and clothing are all areas that can be shared, Chari said. Other possible areas include composting, yoga, bread baking and dancing. Projects for children to make useful object or art pieces from discarded material are also welcome.

Chari said she is very interested in “finding people to share their special skills, skills that we no longer routinely use, or just-for-fun skills.”

Anyone wishing to show or share ideas, or to volunteer, may contact Lynn Owens, owens.lynn@gmail.com, or Suha Chari, suhachari@gmail.com. Visit scrippsranch.org/ssr.
