West Sacramento has a vision to become a place where it’s easy to establish urban farms, and where those farms can quickly connect with their surrounding communities to maximize the extent to which farmers and nearby residents alike share in the farm's bounty. The Fellowship program aimed to increase local awareness of, and consumption of food from, local farms. Fellows looked to address food deserts by making it easier to start new urban farms, and enable local farmers to connect with their surrounding communities and promote the sale of farm-fresh produce directly to residents.
