Team Tilth 2018: Run for WATER ... A Project of Urban Tilth

Run for water with Team Tilth at the 2018 Oakland Running Festival!

Each year Urban Tilth staff, friends and supporters join "Team Tilth" to run in support of Urban Tilth's mission of creating a more healthy, sustainable and just food system.


RUN FOR WATER 2018

This year, for the first time in our 12 year history the West Contra Costa School District will be requiring Urban Tilth to pay over $26,000 for use of water at our school garden sites.

So this year our goal is just that... $26,000 or bust!

RUN FOR WATER <3


OUR GOAL

Our goal is to raise the $26,000 we need to keep the water on and keep growing and sharing a love and knowledge of biology, botany, agroecology, nutrition and human health and environmental stewardship and environmental justice at our 3 WCCUSD sites and programs:

  1. Verde Elementary School Garden and Garden Programs
  2. Richmond High School Gardens, Nursery and Class
  3. AdamsCrest Farm

We are looking for 60+ brave Runners to join TEAM TILTH 2018, our Oakland Running Festival Team, and pledge to raise at least $250 for Urban Tilth.


We support you with group running days, training tips, 2 brunches to make sure all Team Tilth Runners understand how the Running Festival works, where to go and how to prepare and we offer a community of 60 amazing people who want to do something for their bodies and their community and share the experience with you. As a bonus, runners even receive some Urban Tilth race day swag!
