The Common Acre aims to recreate food culture in the Pacific NW and beyond. Our strategy: do meaningful field work involving the public, and create visionary cultural expressions that inspire lasting change.
With partners at Sea-Tac Airport and Seattle City Light, we are helping transform 84 acres of previously neglected land into pollinator-friendly habitat.
Our programs include scientific field research and public education offerings. We are also leading Seattle’s effort to be named a “Bee City USA” with research-based approaches to conservation and public policy.
Our arts and culture projects include art exhibits at Sea-Tac airport (viewed by 2 million people) and Seattle City Hall, our “Art+Agriculture” series, and special events with Bill Frisell, Paul Stamets, and more.
