Seattle Urban Farm Co. which built the roof garden

"An urban farm will provide both tangible and intangible rewards. Our goal at the Seattle Urban Farm Company is to provide you with a wide variety of vegetables every week throughout the growing season. Depending on the time of year, you may receive a basket overflowing with tomatoes, peppers, beans, and salad greens or box full of butternut squash, Brussels sprouts, celery and leeks. In addition to the supply of fresh produce, an urban farm will add beauty to your landscape. The flowers and vegetables of all colors and sizes will make your yard an even more desirable place to spend your summer days. We believe that an urban farm can help foster a connection to our food, environment and community. "
