Urban Harvest STL builds community around inclusive and resilient local food systems.
Urban Harvest STL believes in food rights - all members of our community should have equitable access to fresh, healthy food regardless of socioeconomic status, race or location. We grow healthy produce across a network of seven urban farms in the heart of St. Louis and donate the majority of the harvest to nonprofit partners serving communities with limited or non-existent access to healthy, nutritious food. Urban Harvest STL also educates and engages the surrounding community in these efforts.

2018: Urban Harvest collaborates with the Kranzberg Arts Foundation in the spring to build Sally’s Rooftop Garden & Terrace atop the .ZACK building in Grand Center. In the fall, Urban Harvest STL converts a vacant lot in the Carondelet neighborhood into an urban orchard - Armin Orchard - in partnership with Armin Properties.
