City Slicker Farms Mission

Our Mission is to empower West Oakland community members to meet the immediate and basic need for healthy fresh food for themselves and their families by creating high-yield urban farms and backyard gardens.

Winter Program Schedule

Each winter, City Slicker Farms adopts a winter program schedule, which means we have a modified schedule and do not offer drop-in volunteer opportunities in December and January.

The park at the West Oakland Farm Park will be open daily during winter from 10am - Sunset. The farm is currently closed to volunteers, and our weekly farmstand is closed for the winter. Farmstand and drop-in volunteer hours will resume in February 2017.

The nursery at the West Oakland Farm Park will be open for plant sales on Thursdays and Saturdays from 10:00-4:00 p.m as usual during the winter, except for closures on the following dates: December 21, December 24, December 29, and December 31.

City Slicker Farms’ offices will be closed from Monday, December 19 to Tuesday, January 3.

We wish you a happy winter!
