Mission:

Fertile Underground is a worker-owned cooperative dedicated to improving the health of the Providence community and beyond by providing ethically-sourced, local, and natural foods.

The Fertile Underground have undertaken the work of bringing fresh foods to our neighbors in the West Side. We have had great success sharing harvest among our garden members, friends & family. Now we are rallying for the cause of better health and quality foods for all hopeful residents.

To manifest this reality, we have formed a Worker-Cooperative, which is a business owned and controlled by workers. Everyone is welcome in our store; it is not a food co-op with shopper membership.

Fertile Underground has traditionally organized communally, raising a range of support from a diverse network. We've formed a worker-cooperative to run the food distributions at 1577 Westminster and beyond. We have now been running a grocery for two years in an area that was previously a food desert for 20+ years.

Fertile Underground conceptualize a beneficent neighborhood grocery with deep ties throughout the community. You can get involved.

Coop

To provide reliable and ethical income, we organize as a worker-cooperative, in which each member is directly involved.

Mobile

Many areas of Providence do not have proper access to fresh produce on a regular basis. We plan to bring fresh vegetables on the road directly to places where they are needed.

Cafe

Our Cafe is open for Breakfast & Lunch serving fresh and healthy food.

Services

The Fertile Underground consists of a variety of skilled tradesfolk, from landscapers to carpenters, muralists to yoga experts, snow-plows to make-up artists.

Garden

In Our Communal Garden everyone who shares the work, shares the harvest. No individual squares, but rather a cohesive small farm. From "under-utilized" lots to urban homesteads.

Grocery

The Fertile Underground are adapting the CSA model to work in a new way, something we call Community Supported Grocery.
