Are you passionate about landscaping and gardening? Do you want to support a nonprofit organization that fights to solve poverty?

At Solid Ground, we believe poverty is solvable. Solid Ground combines direct services with advocacy to meet basic needs, nurture success, and spread change. Through our programs, people gain stability and build skills that equip them to move forward in their lives. And by bringing the voices of people experiencing poverty into the political process, we further social justice, supporting our entire community to reach its potential.

Join our team and do what you love as a volunteer Landscape Advisor / Gardener! We are looking for skilled volunteers to help redo the landscaping around the outside of our office building in Wallingford. Our hope is to create a welcoming and inviting place for the people who visit the building, including those who access the food bank and the library. Volunteers will "adopt a section" of our grounds, and tasks include advising about plants that do well without irrigation, designing and installing plantings, and helping maintain gardens.

About Solid Ground


1501 N 45TH ST, SEATTLE, WA 98103, US

Mission Statement

Our mission... Solid Ground works to end poverty and undo racism and other oppressions that are root causes of poverty. Our vision... Solid Ground believes our community can move beyond poverty and oppression to a place where all people have access to quality housing, nutritious food, equal justice and opportunities to thrive. Our values... Solid Ground is committed to working with compassion, integrity, accountability, creativity and an anti-oppression approach to end homelessness, hunger, inequality and other barriers to social justice. We value collaboration and leadership from the communities we serve.


Our history...

Solid Ground was founded in 1974 by community leaders and concerned citizens of one of Seattle's then most economically devastated neighborhoods, Fremont. Originally called the Fremont Public Association, our services - emergency food bank, clothing bank, and employment program - reflected the desperate needs and determined response of a mobilized and committed neighborhood.

Solid Ground today...

As the scope and severity of homelessness and poverty have increased over the years, so too have our reach to our greater community and our range of services. Now based in Seattle’s Wallingford neighborhood, our 30 programs and services help more than 60,000 households each year overcome poverty and build better futures throughout King County and beyond.
