City Slicker Farms

Since 2001, City Slicker Farms has been partnering with the West Oakland community to grow and distribute thousands of pounds of its own fresh produce.
OUR MISSION: The mission of City Slicker Farms is to empower West Oakland community members to meet the immediate and basic need for healthy organic food for themselves and their families by creating high-yield urban farms and backyard gardens.

Our programs are an immediate solution to West Oakland’s lack of real choice for fresh, affordable, healthy food. Our programs also have a long-term sustainable impact, changing underutilized urban landscapes into ones that provide healthy, affordable food and improve the environment for generations to come.

City Slicker Farms organizes low-income communities to achieve equal access to fresh, healthy, organic food through the following programs:

* Community Market Farms Program
* Backyard Garden Program
* Urban Farming Education Program
* Policy Advocacy Initiative
