Welcomes You

Fertile Underground began from a desire to improve our own health & spiritual life through local gardening, and grew into a community movement. Our own improved health inspired us to grow from our original Communal Garden into founding a Worker-Cooperative to provide a way of Right Livelihood for devoted members. We have now accomplished a quarter decade of operating a small Grocery store in what was a "food desert" for 20 years before.

Fertile Underground

Fertile Underground was conceived by a group of artists conversing about ways to directly address the issues of food access, personal health in modern life, creative process, and connection to nature.

OPEN DAILY 10am-9pm weekdays

10-8pm Weekends.

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


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


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.


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