This weekend, Evergreen Shakespeare's production of Romeo and Juliet is blooming in the former Griswold's Office Supply in Olympia, gutted by fire in 2004.

Soon, there'll be much more growing in the long-vacant building - literally. Clifford Lee of Olympia, the building's owner, envisions not only a performance space, commercial and perhaps residential spaces but also a vegetable garden, growing indoors under a greenhouse roof.

"We want to let the light come in," says Lee, who has been working with a group of students from The Evergreen State College on plans for the building.

Lee envisions the Olympia Green Living Center a multiuse space. He's most excited about creating a three-story high and 100-foot-long green wall where food can be grown.
