Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands
In 2009, a group of neighbors and community members came together to propose an urban farm in the heart of the Rainier Beach Community at the former City of Seattle’s Parks and Recreation Department’s Atlantic City Nursery site. The Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands (RBUFW) was founded out of community interest to create a local source of fresh produce, community gardening, economic development and training opportunity for area residents and youth. In 2010, joint operation of the farm was awarded to the Friends of RBUFW with our partner Tilth Alliance (formerly Seattle Tilth).
The vision of Friends of Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands (RBUFW) is a healthy, vibrant and powerful Rainier Beach community through sustainable urban farming. Our mission is to educate and engage community through sustainable urban farming and environmental stewardship. As the farm moves into long-term maintenance and sustainability, the Friends of RBUFW will continue to work toward achieving our vision and mission through our engagement with the community, partnership in the Food Innovation District, and continued co-operatorship with Tilth Alliance.
