Our Mission

We reinforce self-sustaining access to food and build community through urban farming, education, and recreation.

Our Beliefs

Our Values

At a time of rapid and unsettling change, City Slicker Farms offers a “nourishing community” that promotes the setting of roots, not only of the food that people grow, but of a the social connections that sustain body and soul. At a time and in a place of so much uprooting and displacement, City Slicker Farms promotes a model of community rooted in sharing and sustenance, connecting people not only to the soil, but to each other.
