Last Friday one of our community partners, Urban Harvest STL, held a fundraiser for their future FOOD ROOF project. The Raise the ‘FOOD’ ROOF benefit was a fun evening of bowling, with some conversation around urban agriculture and the vital role that the FOOD ROOF will play in providing fresh food and education in their community.
This event raised over $1400, a great success. Proceeds will be added to their fundraising campaign and go toward constructing the FOOD ROOF project. Urban Harvest STL plans to start building the rooftop farm this summer, in time to get some fall crops in the ground.
The FOOD ROOF project will be situated on a rooftop in the heart of city living in downtown St Louis.
There are thousands of residents and workers within blocks who will literally be able to walk to the FOOD ROOF to pick up a share of fresh food from the rooftop, engage in events, volunteer, and learn about growing food in the city.
