Growing food for our family and friends in Rainier Beach
Rainier Beach Urban Farm & Wetlands is Seattle’s largest urban farm on 8 acres of public parkland in Southeast Seattle, enabling a community that struggles with food security to grow and access organic fruits and vegetables. It’s producing healthy food for the Rainier Valley while also serving as an outdoor classroom and learning center for urban agriculture and land stewardship.
But it could be so much more! Seattle Tilth, the Friends of Rainier Beach Urban Farm & Wetlands and Seattle Parks Foundation are raising funds to greatly expand the programming and facilities at the Farm. The completed project will include: an organic urban farm; a children’s learning garden; a community produce stand; a community kitchen; indoor and outdoor classrooms; community gathering space; orchards, apiaries, and chicken coops; and restored and protected wetlands. This will allow the production of 20,000 pounds of healthy food per year (a five-fold increase over today), which will primarily be distributed to the residents of the Rainier Valley.
By making a donation today you can help us complete the Campaign for Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands. Your gift of any size will bring long awaited improvements to this sustainable urban farm and education center.
