Rainier Beach Urban Farm & Wetlands

Find out about Seattle's largest urban farm in Rainier Beach neighborhood.

Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands (RBUFW) is Seattle's largWelcome to RBUFWest urban farm. Community members of all ages volunteer and participate in our educational programs, learning to grow food organically and restore the natural wetlands habitat that runs down the middle of the farm, while supplying fresh food for the community.

Harvesting Sunchokes

Many community organizations collaborate at Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands, making it a dynamic community farm that is growing produce  to feed the community both fresh produce and a sense of empowerment that comes with learning and accomplishment.

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. 

Capital Campaign & Site Development

We have partnered with Seattle Parks Foundation to raise funds for much needed improvements to the site. Improvements will include: a new classroom and teaching kitchen, a wash/pack station, storage, a children's farm, improved green houses, a new circle drive, and better site layout. We hope construction will begin in spring 2016 and look forward to providing better facilities for even more people in 2017. Stay tuned for updates! Find out more about the Campaign for the Farm.
