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.
