Programs

Urban Tilth coordinates 10 small farms and gardens and currently provides technical assistance to 7 community and school gardens across Richmond and San Pablo, California. Each farm or garden project is uniquely rooted in the community where it is located. We share some resources such as knowledge, mulch, extra compost, tools, starts, and long-term planning. The farms raised at the two schools will serve to grow fresh, healthy, organic produce for over 80 local Richmond families.
