Since 1986, Solid Ground has cultivated a 3/4-acre Giving Garden on historic urban farmland at Marra Farm in the South Park neighborhood. All of the produce grown stays in the South Park community, nourishing Concord International School students and their families – and other South Park residents – via food banks, meal programs, and our Work Trade program participants. We host vibrant gardening, nutrition and environmental education programs for young people, and we have many group and individual volunteer opportunities, especially during the growing season. The Marra Farm Coalition (which includes Solid Ground) has the following partners:  City of Seattle P-Patch, a Mien community garden, a market garden called City Grown, honey bees managed by Urban Bee Company, a chicken cooperative, and more.
