City Slicker Farms
City Slicker Farms offers the opportunity for members of the West Oakland community to grow, share, and learn about healthy food. Their mission 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.
CASS supports City Slicker Farms’s vision for a future where West Oakland residents can grow their own food, have access to fresh, healthy food, and have the freedom and the opportunity to work towards greater food self-sufficiency. We also understand the importance of teaching this to our youth. CSF’s Youth Internship Program helps young people develop vocational, entrepreneurial, and social skills, while learning the importance of procuring their own fresh produce.
