City Slicker Farms

1625 16th Street

Our Mission

City Slicker Farms' mission is to empower West Oakland community members to meet the immediate and basic need for food security for healthy, organic food for themselves and their families by creating high-yield urban farms and backyard gardens. These spaces provide healthy, affordable food and improve the environment.   We seek to serve all West Oakland residents, prioritizing people who have least access. Our farms and gardens demonstrate the viability of a local food-production system, serve as community spaces, empower children and adults who want to learn about the connections between ecology, farming and the urban environment, and give West Oakland residents tools for self-reliance.

Incredible environment, their land stewardship is absolutely incredible and the place just screams ABUNDANCE! I was thrilled to meet the farm manager Joseph, he was incredibly accommodating, insightful and passionate. I look forward to visiting this morning for the weekly farmers market from 10-4 See you there!
