City Slicker Farms’ mission is to empower low-income community members to meet the basic need for fresh, healthy food by creating sustainable, high-yield urban farms and backyard gardens.
The Community Market Farms program transforms city lots into urban farms, showcasing best practices for restoring soils and ground water and transitioning the land into a safe place for farming and recreation.
The Backyard Garden program builds sustainable backyard gardens from recycled materials and provide two years of mentorship in natural gardening methods in low-income communities. See us in action here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6oC1IUOg43M
