Our first event was held at Grub in West Olympia and we thought it was a lovely facility. We are hoping we can have future Oly Food Swap events there as well. The facility has a lovely full kitchen, an office, a porch and grounds that are used for many of their events. They are located at 2016 Elliott Ave NW, Olympia.
Grub has a soon to be published cookbook, they are on Facebook under GRuB.
Grub inspires positive personal and community change by bringing people together around food and agriculture.
• Grub partners with youth and people with low-incomes to create empowering individual & community food solutions
• Grub offers tools & trainings to help build a just & sustainable food system.
Grub works in Thurston & Mason counties in Washington State.
Through the GRuB in the schools initiative, disengaged and/or low-income students earn credits while learning about and contributing to their local food systems. We focus on the themes of Farming Self (personal development), Farming Land (sustainable land stewardship), & Farming Community (civic engagement & community service).
Grub also engages PreK-12 youth in hands-on learning about soil, plants, food, and community through field trips to our farm. Grub helps them explore the question, “Where does our food come from?” They also engage PreK-12 youth in hands-on learning about soil, plants, food, and community through field trips to our farm.

Since 1993, Grub has worked alongside volunteers and gardeners to build more than 2,300 backyard and community gardens, host workshops, and provide support, training, and resources for new gardeners to find success. The goal is for gardeners to build the skills and connections to organize good food projects in their own neighborhoods.
