We help others grow.
Many of Seattle’s most groundbreaking initiatives, organizations and projects are run by members of the community for the community. We recognize the burden of becoming a 501 c3 organization, which also serves as a barrier to funding.
Sustainable Seattle partners with organizations and groups working on innovative sustainability projects to remove these barriers and provide administrative support so that community leaders and experts can focus their efforts on the critical work on the ground.
Learn more about the projects we are currently incubating through fiscal sponsorship and administrative support below.
The Common Acre

Working with a network of urban farms to restore native plant and pollinator habitat, community members grow their own produce, gain access to training, and activate shared green space to strengthen bonds to each other and the land.Visit website
