West Oakland Urban Farm and Park
CMG joined City Slicker Farms and Emerald Fund to facilitate a Community Based Design Process and prepare a conceptual plan for a 2 acre urban farm/community park on an abandoned lot in West Oakland. The farm/park hybrid would serve as an outdoor recreational amenity and farming area for the public. The project team worked with local groups including neighbors, seniors, elementary and high school students. CMG prepared and presented site information, ran design workshops, and used community input to create a final park design proposal and application for a California Parks Grant. If it is successful, City Slickers could be offering a great asset to the community in 2011.
