About

Formerly the Park Department's Atlantic City Nursery, this urban farm (one of the 9 biggest in the nation) has undergone a transformation. In summer 2016, via funding from the Parks and Green Spaces Levy Opportunity Fund and a captial campaign by community partners, construction began on improvements to the site that include a new classroom, commercial kitchen, office space, improved pedestrian and vehicle access, and new paths and seating - as well as wetlands restoration and protection. These features and more enable a "farm to table" experience, bringing to life the food system in a powerful and interconnected way with full community engagement.  Key partners in the creation and operation of the Farm include the Friends of Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands, Seattle Tilth, and the Seattle Parks Foundation.  

The Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands brings diverse community members together to learn, play and enjoy. It will ultimately engage 5,000 community members and produce more than 20,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables annually, to be distributed primarily to Rainier Valley residents.
