Welcome to Evergreen Land Trust

The Evergreen Land Trust Association holds cooperative houses, farms, and forestlands in the Puget Sound region of Washington State. As members of the Association, we live on or nearby the properties that are entrusted to our care, and govern the organization democratically.

We view land not as a commodity to be sold on the open market for profit, but as a common resource to steward for future generations. We know that resource depletion and housing affordability are becoming serious problems. The Evergreen Land Trust Association is one small part of a growing effort to find viable and ethical solutions.

On this website you will find information about who we are, and why we believe land trusts are an important tool for keeping land accessible and bountiful. We thank you for your interest, and invite you to browse here for ideas and tools that may be useful to you.
