What is the RB Urban Farm?

The vision for Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands (RBUFW) is to be a vibrant community hub and model green infrastructure project transforming a surplus Parks Department facility into an innovative organic urban farm and demonstration wetlands restoration site. This 10-acre site has the potential to produce over 20,000 pounds of fresh healthy food annually for families struggling with food security, provide educational opportunities for at-risk and underserved youth, offer access to and education for a rare in-city natural wetlands environment, improve wetlands habitat for native wildlife, foster much-needed economic development and strengthen community in a predominately low-income neighborhood within one of the most diverse zip codes in the nation.
