City Slicker Farms allies

City Slicker Farms is currently recruiting spring Food Justice Allies. Food Justice Allies in the Urban Farming Education Program participate alongside staff in helping City Slicker Farms fulfill our mission to empower West Oakland community members to meet the need for healthy organic food for themselves and their families. Allies can participate in urban farming and organizational support activities. The spring allyship usually runs from February to May but dates are flexible now that COVID-19 guidelines have been strictly enforced. Our Backyard Garden and Onsite programs have halted during the pandemic and will be adjusted to fit the requirements given by the CDC. We have plenty of opportunities and need for support at our farm and as mentors with our garden members, we will proceed with the utmost caution and follow all social distancing rules. We need Allies now more than ever, these times require healthy living to protect our beautiful community and keep everyone safe. City Slicker Farms needs you to help support us in continuing the fight for Food Justice here in Oakland!

Mission Statement

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.

Description

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

All our work relies upon education, empowerment, and building solidarity. We know that the skills, knowledge, and ability to do this work exist among the people we serve. Our programs start by investing in individuals through education and training. Then we provide them with the essential tools, resources, and ongoing support to become food self-sufficient. In the process we restore our neighborhoods through environmental stewardship and community greening.
