The Backyard Garden Program is a free program that helps West Oakland residents, with limited means, start their own backyard gardens. City Slicker Farms staff members test the soil, help create a garden plan and assist clients in planting the garden. For the following two years afterwards, a garden mentor is available who not only provides advice, but often times garden supplies as well.
Call City Slicker Farms for more information on the Backyard Garden Program.
