West Sacramento Urban Farm
The West Sacramento Urban Farm Program provides land, tools, infrastructure and a mentorship to small scale farmers looking to get started in an urban environment. As part of CA Farm Academy we aim to address the needs of beginning farmers giving them opportunities to launch a small farm business.
The West Sacramento Urban Farm Program converts vacant lots owned both publicly and privately in West Sacramento into Urban Farm Business Incubators. These Urban Farms work with over 600 volunteers per year, grow over 25,000 of pounds of produce per month during peak seasons, donate to Food Banks, sell to residents via on site farm stands, provide fresh produce to both Washington Unified and Davis Unified School Districts, sell to local restaurants, participate in various local farmers markets and much more! Urban agriculture revitalizes community’s one vacant lot at a time, it increases resilience by transforming food deserts into food havens and it creates economic growth by incubating small businesses.
