Urban Harvest STL

Urban Harvest STL is a farming based nonprofit organization located in the city of St. Louis, MO. Our mission is to build community around inclusive and resilient local food systems.

“We have seven different farming sites, but our main hub is the Food Roof located at 1335 Convention Plaza, 63103. The Food Roof is a 10,500 sq. ft. rooftop farm built as an original design that couples as stormwater management site and also a market garden that can produce up to 4,000 lbs per year.

There are two main outlets to experience our food. One is through our ticketed events that we hold throughout the year on the Food Roof. You can look into these events on our website. Also, restaurants “The Dark Room” and “Turn” (both located in midtown within the Kransberg Arts District), have our produce that people can experience.

Every Saturday 9am-12pm (weather dependent) we have community days on the Food Roof (1335 convention Plaza). Community days means that everyone and anyone can come up to enjoy our roof. People have the choice of helping us garden or simply hang out and enjoy the space.”

More About Our Farm

Farm Size

10,500 sq. ft. between two rooftop gardens and five gardens in soil scattered across the City of St. Louis.

Conservation Practices

  • Crop rotation
  • Integrated pest management
  • No till
  • Drip irrigation
  • Pollinator enhancement areas
  • Cover crops
  • Compost

Additional Practices

“We integrate the practice of bio-intensity and polyculture together. We are not working with a lot of space on our rooftops and gardens, so we take advantage of certain crops and crop families that like to be planted together. We then plant those crops closer together for bio-intensity and also adjacent to nitrogen fixers like beans to enhance growth.”
