Just across the Bay Bridge from my small-scale Tilthy Rich backyard lies an inspirational urban farm/movement in West Oakland. Though I have not yet visited the City Slicker Farm there, I have read and followed it online for years now, looking to it as a source of motivation and leadership. (http://www.cityslickerfarms.org/) A few hours ago today was the groundbreaking ceremony of the "West Oakland Urban Farm and Park, a new kind of community park space that hosts space for healthy food cultivation, all developed in partnership with the West Oakland community." Please read the article by clicking on the photo or the link below. Feel good, Tilthy Rich stuff!
