The 5th and C urban farm is expanding to other locations within the City thanks to a $40,000 grant from The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company.
New urban farm plots include: 2 acres at Cummins and Douglas, 3.3 acres at Lake Washington and Jefferson, and 2 acres behind the Yolo Education Center on Westacre.
The Center for Land-Based Learning is partnering with the City of West Sacramento on these projects, which Mayor Christopher Cabaldon says are very important for the region:
7,500 pounds of produce were harvested from the 5th and C farm last season. The expansion plans include mobile farm stands for produce sales and donations, plus a tool lending library for beginning farmers.
