Fitzgerald Park and Outdoor Classroom Update

To Our Community,



Letter from Joseph

Dear City Slicker Farms family, 



Open Letter about Recent Projects at Fitzgerald and Union Plaza Parks

Dear neighbors and friends,

We are writing this letter to respond to some complaints that City Slicker Farms and the City of Oakland Department of Parks and Recreation have been receiving about the outdoor classroom at Fitzgerald Park. We take these comments very seriously and wanted to share some information about the development of this Community Market Farm.



Muriel's students love fresh veggies!

My name is Muriel Sterling, owner and operator of Sterling`s Family Child Care Facility here in Oakland. That’s one of my students and his mom on the cover of the City Slicker Farms’ Annual Report you received this summer! We’ve all been so inspired by our experience that I wanted to share our story with you.



Thanks to all of you and IKEA co-workers, City Slicker Farms WON the $10,000 in IKEA Products, Services And In-Kind Donations From IKEA Emeryville! We are so thrilled and so grateful to you all for voting for us. We can't wait to design with IKEA and then show you the pictures and invite you over when we're done.

February 1, 2013 (Oakland, CA)City Slicker Farms, a non-profit urban farming organization based in West Oakland, yesterday held a ground breaking ceremony to begin development of a new Urban Farm and Park, which was conceived in collaboration with the West Oakland community. What began in 2010 as a seed of hope is now coming to fruition following City Slicker Farms’ purchase of a vacant lot at the turn of 2013.
