City Slickers

City Slicker Farms empowers West Oakland residents to meet their need for healthy, organic food. It is a place where community members can learn about growing their own produce in urban farms and backyard gardens as well as purchase produce. The project, completed in June 2016, features a public park and playground, plaza, a community garden and urban farm. The site-built structures include the main building which houses an office and restrooms; covered and open-air farm stands; and a demonstration zone.
