What is the Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlants Project? Atlantic Street Nursery
Rainier Beach Urban Farm & Wetlands Project is a community led and community bred effort to establish an Urban Farm in the heart of the Rainier Beach Community at the former Atlantic City Nursery site located at 5513 South Cloverdale Street in Southeast Seattle. The Atlantic City Nursery is a former nursery ran by the City of Seattle's Parks & Recreation Department. The closing and relocation of the Park's operations, has created an opportunity for the neighborhood to help shape the future use of this park property.
The Friends of Atlantic City Nursery was formed out of community interest to create a local source of fresh produce, community gardening, economic development and training opportunity for area residents and youth. The RB Urban Farm % Wetlands Project will serve as an innovative effort to build community pride and preservation of the area wetlands and the environment.
