St. Louis will soon have its first rooftop farm.
Urban Harvest STL signed a lease for the space this week on the roof of a two-story building a couple of blocks east of the City Museum.
The non-profit’s founding director, Mary Ostafi, said the 10,000 sq. ft. rooftop will be more than just a community garden. “We’re going to have an outdoor classroom, as well as a gathering space for community events," Ostafi said. "We’ll be raising chickens and tending bees."
