Great News! The City of Olympia has purchased the Commons and they're leasing it back to us through the help of the NorthWest EcoBuilding Guild to preserve and maintain. It has been great to work with the City of Olympia over the years, as we have received several grants through their Neighborhood Project to improve and enhance the Commons. We continue our long partnership with The Evergreen State College to foster the development of an Eco-District with our larger community of neighbors and institutions. 
If you or your organization need space or you want to connect with us, please do: info@fertileground.org

Welcome to The Commons @ Fertile Ground.

We're operating on 3 lots, preserving green, open space on a busy corner of downtown Olympia, Washington.

The Commons @ Fertile Ground is a 501(c)3 non-profit focused on demonstrating urban sustainability and resilience on a neighborhood scale in Downtown Olympia, Washington. In the midst of commerce and state workers, we maintain a large garden, compost bins, a Community Supported Agriculture drop-off shed and many other not-so-visible activities that support our mission. We are providing Olympia with open, green space. 

We need your help. We don't just need money to make this happen. We also need allies, ideas, research, networking, artists, children and just plain volunteer energy. We need people who understand the sharing economy and want to add their gifts.

Your involvement will help us continue our mission to demonstrate urban sustainability and foster neighborhood resilience. To do that, our current priorities are to become a self-sustaining community enterprise, and involve our community through a variety of upcoming events and initiatives on food, shelter and sharing.

The Commons at Fertile Ground does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations. These activities include, but are not limited to, hiring and firing of staff, selection of volunteers and vendors, and provision of services. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our staff, volunteers, subcontractors, vendors, and clients.
