Editorial-Austurbruin ready to blast

You’ve really got to hand it to the folks at the Austurbruin. They know how to get things done. They know how to get the community involved to improve their neighborhood and most of all — they know how to accomplish all this and have a good time doing it.

You’ve really got to hand it to the folks at the Austurbruin. They know how to get things done. They know how to get the community involved to improve their neighborhood and most of all — they know how to accomplish all this and have a good time doing it.

Residents who have helped create a lovely green space just off Caldart, are at it again this weekend as Bio Blast kicks on its afterburners.

The event, which touts environmental learning and informative talks by experts on everything from bugs to birds, should be just that — a blast.

The Saturday gathering is all about Mother Nature but its more than that. It’s also about teaching folks how they not only adversely impact their surroundings but how they can improve them as well.

Austurbruin is a model in this respect.

It’s a model for a community that cares and a model for all those in Kitsap County and beyond who aspire to better the world around them.

We applaud our neighbors up the hill.

They’re showing us that if you want something done right, there’s nothing better than doing it yourself.

We hope the positive messages they continue to offer spread throughout North Kitsap and beyond and that someday all of our neighborhoods will seek an active role in improving the world as well.
