Free Geek Olympia started at the beginning of 2005. Our core group has about fifteen people in it as of Octobe 2005. We meet every Sunday from 4 to 6 pm at our space in downtown Olympia 808 Jefferson St. SE.

We're accepting donations, recycling, building infrastructue, and bootstrapping our distribution program, while finally formalizing our status and pursuing 501c3 tax exemption. Current (official) hours of operation are Thursday and Saturday from 1PM to 7PM. We have recently taken over the old Free School, and thus expaned our space from an attic to an entire house. We are looking to expand further to a warehouse in Olympia.
