Seattle embraces urban farming at ten acre Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands

By Matt Hutchins
Inhabitat

What was once a tree nursery is now home to Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands (RBUFW), Seattleā€™s largest urban farm and home to a host of community programs run by Seattle Tilth. Through a community design process, the ten-acre former tree nursery was reshaped into the largest urban agriculture project in the Northwest. The farm is a successful effort in bringing community members of all ages together to volunteer, learn to grow food organically, and supply fresh food via Good Food Bags: Community Supported Agriculture and weekly market.
