Program areas at Urban Tilth

Community Programs is a project open-to-all community farms, gardens, and edible streetscapes located at sites through Richmond. This is centered on nearly two acres of the Richmond Greenway, a former railway line, where we have planted and manage a Berryland, an Edible Forest. Also includes a 42 raised bed community garden also on the Richmond Greenway. We also operate a Garden Technical Assistance team which employs and trains local youth to help other schools, community organizations and churches build and maintain their own gardens.
Fiscal sponsorship relates to costs associated with the management and review of administrative functions for organizations that do not have formal 501c3 status and which have arranged to operate under the umbrella of Urban Tilth. Several of these organizations include Cooperation Richmond, It Takes a Village, Rich City Rides, Moving Forward, Richmond Grows Seed Library, and fCypher Healing Herbs Podcast Project.
Education Programs is a farm, classroom, and community program at Richmond High School. The institute constitutes an in-class accredited class called "Urban Ecology and American Food Systems": an on-site 8000 square foot farm and a CSA program serving the school community. In addition the Education Program has afterschool programs called; The Healing Movement, The Urban Naturalists, Urban Watershed, and Naturalists Club. The Education and Urban Agriculture also includes our elementary school programs at Verde elementary and Lincoln elementary. At these two sites we manage large gardens, in-school and after-school gardening, nutrition and science programs. It also includes a 40,000 square foot urban farm at Adams Middle School, an abandoned middle school campus in partnership with the west conta costa unified school district. Lastly, The Basins of Relations Watershed Stewardship Program includes training in watershed technology, community engagement, and development of a community trail.
