ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Plans are underway for a rooftop farm in downtown St. Louis.
The farm will be built by Urban Harvest STL on the roof of a building at Convention and 14th, just north of Washington Avenue. The non-profit says they signed a lease to use the rooftop to grow food, raise chickens and keep bees.
People can sign up for a plot in the community garden, or arrange for local deliveries of fresh produce cultivated on the roof farm.
Construction on the farm is set to begin in March with organizers hoping to have the farm open by summer.
