Because of my calendar, a Bastyr University student moving to the Seattle area from Minnesota asked me about some permaculture projects in the area. I'm posting my reply here, just in case it might be useful to anyone else.
First, and if you haven't already, look at the Cascadia forum on permies.com, or www.jocelynsevents.com for events in the area. Here's a great meetup group to start with: http://www.meetup.com/Seattle-Permaculture-Guild-Meetup/. For the Bastyr area, you might also get to know folks here: http://sustainableneseattle.ning.com/. As for project ideas, you might see what kinds of things are cooking at http://21acres.org/ which is in Woodinville, and only about 5-10 miles from Bastyr/Kenmore. Another excellent group is http://www.shorelinesolar.org/ - Shoreline is basically North Seattle and is very close to Kenmore.
If you're looking for spiritual or Christian connections, I have limited knowledge in that area, except that personally, I attend www.wuuc.org, where environmental/green programs are wholeheartedly supported, yet not so much going on in terms of volunteers and projects. WUUC, and other Eastside churches take turns supporting and hosting Tent City 4.
Then I went on to mention some intentional communities and private permaculture projects I knew of in the area.
Whenever I can connect people to groups or information...well, that feels like planting some special seeds to me.
