Common Bread is an interfaith organization run by students at the Evergreen State College. It strives to be a still point where students and community members may learn, express and experience the many spiritual traditions the world has to offer.
Our mission is to spread organic gardening practices to people who otherwise would not get the opportunity to love it; students just out the city/suburbs, people who live in apartments that don't allow space for a garden, people who are intrigued by the idea of growing their own food but intimidated about trying it on their own. We will provide tools and seeds for your 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 group aims to form a strong and supportive community of gardeners in which all learn, grow, and teach each other.
The 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.
Cooper Point Journal members also commit themselves to providing a learning laboratory for effective, responsible expression and communication, whether the expression of communication is in the newspaper, with an individual or within a group. This includes the discipline of journalism and is in keeping with the responsibilities that accompany the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States and the Freedom of Speech article of the Constitution of the State of Washington.
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 teh decision-making authority and responsibilities of leadership, confronting injustice and discrimination.
Developing Ecologically Aware Practices (DEAP)

We support student projects in connection with DEAP in order to increase access to activities and opportunities relating to permaculture and sustainability.
