Firefly is thrilled and honored to announce that Leah Dannar-Garcia has been enlisted by Fidelity Bank to launch a brand new urban agriculture venture.
RISE Farms atop the Fidelity Bank Car Park

One of the largest roof-top farms in the Midwest, RISE Farms is located in the heart of downtown Wichita, Kansas. RISE Farms consists of a 15,000-square-foot urban farm and a 204-panel solar farm situated on the top floor of Fidelity Bank’s mixed-use RISE Car Park development. Here we grow a variety of produce in a no-waste manner to supply area restaurants with fresh, local ingredients. Additionally, we partner with Fidelity Bank’s Office of Culture & Talent on employee engagement programs. RISE Farms is an urban extension of our sustainable farming mission. In addition to providing local produce, the green-roof farm lessens the urban heat island effect, curbs building energy costs and prevents excess storm water run-off. Coupled with the solar farm, which provides power to the parking structure and ground level retail locations, RISE is truly a beacon of environmental progress.
