It’s that time again! Time for our Urban Agriculture Summer Apprentice program. The Summer Apprentice Program is a rare opportunity for West County youth to join a dynamic and positive group of their peers for a life changing summer of intensive urban agriculture training, community engagement, mind-opening field trips and paid summer employment.

During the course of this intensive 6-week program youth are placed on small crews at 4 of our community and school gardens where they learn to work together to grow fresh, healthy organic food for our community while developing meaningful skills. Click here to learn more…

Making history in community led public space design!

Over the past five months the Friends of the Richmond Greenway, a collaborative of 17 local non profit and community organizations based in Richmond, including Urban Tilth, have embarked with the City of Richmond on an unprecedented project to actual employ a team of 57 local residents to redesign major sections of the Richmond Greenway as apart of the UNITY PARK PROJECT.

It has been a long, challenging but beautiful road so far. Yesterday, May 13, 2015, at City Hall our 5 design teams came together to review our second draft designs together and it was clear … We are doing and creating something PHENOMENAL!
