Urban Harvest STL empowers communities to cultivate equitable access to healthy, sustainably grown food and enhance biodiversity in cities.
We envision vibrant cities where under-utilized spaces are transformed into productive urban farms addressing the need for equitable access to healthy food for all. Our community based agricultural projects restore natural ecosystems, stimulate biodiversity, and educate and engage people of all ages to create stronger, more nourishing bonds with each other - and with nature.
