Mission Statement

Cloud 9 Rooftop Farm fosters stewardship of urban ecosystems and communities through rooftop farming, education, and community programming.

Description

Cloud 9 Rooftop Farm fosters stewardship of urban ecosystems and communities through rooftop farming, education, and community programming. Cloud 9 was born out of a dream to not only farm in urban spaces, but to create a more resilient culture around food access in Philadelphia. We believe that increasing the city’s green acres through rooftop agriculture will improve the well-being of individuals, communities, and the environment.

Cloud 9 grows food on roofs, and offers education programs on urban sustainability in Philadelphia to improve stormwater management, food security, and community cohesion.

Cloud 9 aims to develop replicable systems of diverse community engagement with sustainable rooftop agriculture that support community cohesion and collective transformation. By growing food for local consumption, offering education, training, garden installation, and growing services, Cloud 9 supports the use of rooftop space for food production in Philadelphia.
