Tim is the author of many books, including Biophilic Cities, Resilient Cities, and Green Urbanism.

8th Annual Seattle Feast with Friends on Oct. 15th
Nearly 300 supporters of Futurewise joined us for an unforgettable evening inside the packed Palace Ballroom on October 15th.
Hosted by Jackie Cross and Tom Douglas, the successful Feast highlighted the importance of protecting our state’s farm, aqua and viticultural lands.
Top Northwest chefs partnered with local farms, ranches and producers to create incredible tastings – and paired those bites with Washington wines.
The sold-out-event raised nearly $70,000 to allow Futurewise to continue protecting our working farmlands.
Thank you to our generous sponsors, guest chefs, local farms and ranches, wineries and local producers.
