Today we are launching a crowdfunding campaign with Barnraiser and are asking you to join us in our efforts to increase food production within a 20-mile radius of downtown Seattle. We hope to construct new greenhouses and make other infrastructure improvements at our Seattle Headquarters and at our new 4-acre certified organic Urban-Fringe Farm in Woodinville, WA.
To get straight to the point, check out our campaign page here: OUR BARNRAISER CAMPAIGN
People from all walks of life are interested in connecting more closely with the food they eat. Urban food production provides an opportunity to increase awareness of environmental and social issues, to make city life more sustainable and to provide access to fresh, healthy food.
As interest in urban food production grows, we hope to continue creating new garden spaces and to improve our existing spaces. In order to accomplish these goals, we need larger and better infrastructure.
We need YOU to join us in this endeavor by helping us raise $30,000 to expand our farm infrastructure: creating new jobs, reaching more of our community, and growing more food!

What is crowdfunding:
Crowdfunding is a popular new method of raising capital for small businesses. It provides access to investment capital for socially-minded organizations that want to foster awareness and generate a community around their project. The best known crowdfunding platform is Kickstarter.
What is Seattle Urban Farm Company:
Seattle Urban Farm Company is a small business that designs, builds and maintains edible gardens. We believe that sustainable urban agriculture can promote healthy diets, environmental stewardship, stronger communities and improved quality of life. We hope that developing economically sound, city-based farming ventures will increase public awareness of agricultural issues and foster a greater appreciation of farmers everywhere.
What is Barnraiser:
Barnraiser is an online crowdfunding platform (just like Kickstarter) but it is designed specifically to help create awareness and community support for sustainable agriculture ventures. It has allowed us to create a fundraising campaign that makes it easy for you to learn and contribute!
