Best Urban Farming Supply Store 

Biofuel Oasis

The gals that run Biofuel Oasis are a pretty savvy urban-sustainability bunch, and not just because they make and sell biodiesel from recycled vegetable oil. In their real lives, they also grow vegetables and fruit, tend bees, and raise chickens, goats, and rabbits. Inside their new biodiesel filling station on the corner of Ashby and Sacramento, they've also opened a nifty store that caters to other sustainability-minded folks. Inventory includes a DIY bookshelf — filled with books on everything from growing your own food to creating your own water catchment system — beekeeping supplies and hardware, organic chicken feed and scratch, salt licks for goats, and more. Prices are similar to other places selling organic farm supplies. If you're new to the concept of urban sustainability, they also offer Urban Farming classes on raising chickens, beekeeping, and biodiesel home-brewing, running from $25-$90.
