Now In Funding Round, St. Louis Food Roof Team Steps Up Campaign



Urban Harvest STL, the nonprofit behind St. Louis’ first downtown community garden, is celebrating being one step closer to building the city’s first roof-top farm, the FOOD ROOF,  after garnering the most citizen votes in an online “ideas” for the month of December on Rally Saint Louis.

Now the FOOD ROOF project seeks funding (funding link here), working to provide a bustling, downtown rooftop farm that grows fresh, local food and a stronger community. The FOOD ROOF will feature an outdoor classroom, gathering space for community events, chicken coops for raising chickens, bee tending capacity, and demonstrations of innovative approaches to urban agriculture including hydroponics and vertical farming.
