Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands is a vibrant community hub for food, urban farming and environmental education in the heart of Seattle’s Rainier Beach neighborhood –one the most diverse zip codes in the nation. About half of this 7.2 acres site is dedicated to organic food production and about half of the farm is dedicated to restoring a natural wetlands and buffer zone.
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.
