Bike Shop

The Evergreen Bike Shop is a student-led, community-run, do-it-yourself bike shop that is open to the entire Olympia area. Our goal is to provide various resources to the community in order to promote cycling as an active lifestyle as well as educate people regarding alternative transportation issues. The shop provides an alternative to the often prohibitive nature of bike repair and culture both in financial cost and accessibility. By maintaining a free learning environment where anyone, student or not, can develop skills of bike self-reliance, the shop encourages a developing ethic of environmental and social consciousness.

Meetings

Open when volunteers are in the Bike Shop, see Facebook page for schedule

Cooper Point Journal

Cooper Point Journal organization members commit their efforts to two primary purposes: compiling submissions from students at large to create a newspaper that focuses on and reflects the student citizens of The Evergreen State College and examines how matters, particularly within the college, affect and involve students. The newspaper - also named Cooper Point Journal - serves as a medium for informing and entertaining students and as a forum for the ideas and opinions of students and others.The learning laboratory aspect of the CPJ organization manifests itself by developing and maintaining effective and responsible managing of operations and finances of an endeavor (newspaper) organization, as well as dealing with such life challenges as organizing efforts to develop and maintain an inclusive organization, establishing a group culture of inclusive and responsible decision making, personal and collective accountability, leadership that focuses of fulfilling organization goals and objectives by fostering an environment of consensus and cooperation rather than focusing on the decision-making authority and responsibilities of leadership, confronting injustice and discrimination.

Evergreen Community Gardens

Our mission is to maintain a shared space for the Evergreen and greater community to practice organic gardening. The Evergreen Community Gardens will provide the tools and seeds for success, both literally and metaphorically. We organize workshops and work-parties emphasizing responsible, ecological gardening practices and the importance of local food systems. The Evergreen Community Gardens aims to form a strong and supportive community of gardeners that will all learn, teach and grow together. The group also strives to strengthen the bonds between Evergreen, Evergreen alumni, and the surrounding community, and to instill the love of organic gardening in new gardeners which will hopefully last a lifetime.
