Rainier Beach Urban Farm & Wetlands

TTomato Farmerhe Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands (RBUFW) is in the early stages of becoming an urban community learning farm where people learn to grow food in the city.

The farm used to be called the Atlantic City Nursery and is owned by Seattle Parks and Recreation. Seattle Tilth was granted co-operatorship of the site in 2011 along with Friends of Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands.

With the help of community volunteers and organizations, Seattle Tilth is developing the site into a dynamic farm that will be an educational place for the whole community. Weekly volunteer work parties are happening every Saturday and you are invited to stop by and get your hands dirty! Learn from the experts through hands-on experience at this little urban farm in Rainier Beach and be part of an exciting process of growing a community farm!
