Urban Tilth envisions West Contra Costa County as a healthy and vibrant community with ample access to locally grown, organic food, plenty of jobs and programs for youth. We know that we cannot achieve this goal alone. In order to realize this vision, Urban Tilth partners with organizations across West Contra Costa County build strong collaborations that can provide a strong support network to each organization. We also offer fiscal sponsorship to nascent organizations with similar or complimentary goals.

Richmond Grows Seed Lending Library
Richmond Grows Seed Lending Library is a free urban seed project committed to increasing the capacity of our community to feed itself wholesome food by offering seeds and education. The Seed Library celebrates biodiversity through the time-honored tradition of seed saving, nurtures locally-adapted plant varieties, and fosters community resilience, self-reliance and a culture of sharing. We celebrate our human diversity through outreach and inclusion.
Let people know that they can “borrow” seeds for free from the Richmond Public Library. It’s easy. You just need to watch our on-line orientation video (available on our website – RichmondGrows.org) or attend an in-person orientation at the public library:
