City Slicker Farms

Grant provided by the Local Food Capital Collaborative www.cityslickerfarms.org
City Slicker Farms was founded in 2001 to empower West Oakland community members to meet basic needs for fresh, healthy food by creating sustainable, high-yield urban farms and backyard gardens. To date, City Slicker Farms has built over 400 backyard and community gardens, produced 300,000 pounds of food, and trained thousands of community members in organic gardening. The Farms’ latest project, the West Oakland Farm Park, turned a vacant brownfield site into a thriving urban farm and permanent home for all programs.
