I met Chiara at the Bellingham Saturday Farmers Market during a trip up to northern Washington last weekend. What a beautiful person. You may have heard of her... last month she camped out up in a tree on Bainbridge Island in an effort to stop the development of a commercial lot that will have several big box stores. She is only 19; I think it's pretty amazing that she did this for her home town. Unfortunately the building project is going through as planned and a 72,000 square foot mall is now going to take the place of 830 trees. You can find out more about it here.
