Sustainable Bainbridge was awarded the prestigious Phyllis Young Award at the Bainbridge Island Land Trust’s annual membership meeting and potluck on Friday, Jan. 31.

Connie Waddington, interim executive director of the land trust, presented the award.

The nonprofit presents the award each year, and the honor is named after Phyllis Young, the first person to offer her land for conservation by the Bainbridge Island Land Trust.

“We are thrilled and honored to receive the Phyllis Young Award,” said Jane Lindley, president of Sustainable Bainbridge. “We love working with Bainbridge Island Land Trust to help make our community truly sustainable and look forward to more opportunities to do so.”

Sustainable Bainbridge’s goals include increasing awareness and understanding by individuals, nonprofits, business and our local government to make our community sustainable socially, environmentally and economically. The organization’s initiatives include Bainbridge Community Broadcasting, Student Conservation Corp, Let’s Pull Together, Prepared Neighborhoods, Building a Sustainable Economy (BASE) lectures at the library, Zero Waste and many more. The award itself is comprised of artwork created by artist and Island Treasure, Michele Van Slyke.
