The Common Acre restores relationships between people and the land through ecology, agriculture, and art.
Volunteer for Pollinators at the Green Line
Date: July 11 & Aug 15, 2020
Help us create community green space and pollinator habitat under the power lines in the Rainier Beach. The Green Line is a collaborative restoration project taking place under Seattle City Light’s transmission corridor in South Seattle. We have studied wild bees in the area for 3 years, and planted one acre of pollinator habitat to test how pollinator populations are affected. We are excited to be expanding our planting area and working with many partners to investigate new ways to make public green space more inviting and accessible!
We work with communities and public agencies to revive land by restoring and researching native plant and pollinator habitat, supporting urban agriculture, and activating community green spaces. By creating space to convene artistic and cultural expressions, we seek to inhabit the intersection of art and science.
The Common Acre is unique in the way we have integrated creativity into science-based ecological change. By sharing data driven, action oriented models, we seek to be one of hundreds, or thousands of groups working towards solutions.
