Eastside Urban Farm and Garden is a different type of business. We are a mission driven business that takes environmental stewardship seriously, while also recognizing the real-life economic realities that many families face. We believe that restoring local organic food production is key to keeping our community and families healthy for the future. We also believe the goal of urban and small farming should be to make raising our own food affordable and healthier, with minimal impact on the environment. Our mission is to increase local food resiliency, and thereby foster community stability.
We offer a wide range of tried and tested products from plants to feed, seed, tools and assorted farm and household supplies, so that our customers can make the best possible choice that fits their family’s needs as well as their budget. The goal is to get folks moving in the right direction, toward sensible, sustainable, food production, animal husbandry and resource management. We want our neighbors to understand that growing their own food, and raising their own livestock while caring for their land is not radical – it just makes sense! Many people are rightly concerned about the serious problems that exist in our current large-scale agricultural model. We believe that one solution is to restore local, sustainable, agricultural food production.
Eastside Urban Farm and Garden Center aims to get rid of any mystery around growing one’s own food and raising small livestock. We aim to offer the most comprehensive resource available in the county for people interested in Urban Farming, Edible landscaping, and hyper local food production. Period.
“According to the USDA, around 15 percent of the world’s food is now grown in urban areas. City and suburban agriculture takes the form of backyard, roof-top and balcony gardening, community gardening in vacant lots and parks, roadside urban fringe agriculture and livestock grazing in open space.”
-Municipal Resources and Services Center of Washington
