WHAT IS THE MURAL PROJECt?

Convention across street looking N-2.jpg

As you can see from this photo, the FOOD ROOF Farm is thoroughly hidden from pedestrians and drivers passing from the street.  Countless individuals who live and work in the area pass the nondescript beige building every day without knowing that a flourishing, inclusive community space sits right in their neighborhood.

Thanks to community support from Give STL Day and a generous donation from Wells Fargo, we have raised $8,056 to fund the FOOD ROOF mural! Working with local mural artists Robert and Liza Fishbone, we will overhaul the building’s exterior with a vibrant mural that will more accurately represent the flourishing farm that sits atop it. We will do the same on the dimly lit, dingy inner stairwell. In doing so, we hope to involve more St Louisans in urban farming, food justice, and the wonderful community we have grown!⁣
