Thank you to all who have made a donation to CKC Farming this year.  We fully recognize the leap of faith that you took in supporting such a young organization. 

Through your generosity and belief in our work, CKC Farming is happy to announce that since our founding in Janaury 2019 we have: 

  • Spearheaded efforts to protect Koiner Farm with a 500 year agricultural easement.

  • Hosted field trips, trainings, and community events attended by over 100 individuals.

  • Recruited and continue to manage a team of 16 regular Farmhand Volunteers and Interns.

  • Built a three-bin hot compost system which will become part of the Compost Education Hub at Koiner Farm.

  • Cleaned out the garage and are making progress towards creating an indoor-outdoor education space.

  • Lent our support and advice to a second urban farm in Montgomery County.


We envision a network of urban farms here in Montgomery County, that are protected as valuable open spaces and recognized for the many amazing benefits that urban farms bring to a community. 


CKC Farming creates  meaningful opportunities for Montgomery County neighbors to connect with each other, with the food we eat, and with the Earth.  We hope you'll join us on our mission create and preserve this thriving network of urban farms. Thank you!
