About Us / Solid Ground History: Each year we provide shelter, food, home care, transportation and other basic services to more than 38,000 families and individuals in need throughout King County. \n\nBeyond helping people overcome homelessness, hunger and isolation, we support people to take positive steps toward lasting stability and self-sufficiency. Programs include: \n\nLettuce Link (an innovative food and gardening program growing and giving since 1988) creates access to fresh, nutritious and organic produce, seeds, and gardening information for families with lower incomes in Seattle. We work to educate the community about food security and sustainable food production. \nFruit is a valuable community resource. In 2007, Community Fruit Tree Harvest volunteers harvested more than 10,000 pounds of apples, plums and pears from Seattle fruit trees and delivered it to people with limited access to organic produce.\n\nMarra Farm is a model urban community farm engaging people in sustainable agriculture and education while enhancing local food security. Tucked into the South Park neighborhood of Seattle, it has 4 acres of historic preserved farmland. Marra Farm generates tons of fresh, organic produce, with more than 13,000 pounds grown each year. In addition to residents growing food for their own families, distribution includes donations to local residents and the senior lunch program through the Providence Regina House Food Bank, Mien senior citizens, and Concord Elementary School students and their families.
