Welcome to The Commons @ Fertile Ground. We're operating on 3 lots, preserving green, open space in 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, chickens, 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. Our intention is to put the land into a trust so that it will always be accessible to our community.
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.
