West Sacramento Urban Farms

City of West Sacramento
West Sacramento, California

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 Washington Unified, Roblas Unified, Natomas Unified and Davis Unified School Districts, sell to local restaurants, participate in various local farmers markets and much more! Urban agriculture revitalizes communities 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.  More about this project >
