Koiner Farm is a true city farm located in the heart of downtown Silver Spring, Maryland. 


This little farm is within walking distance of East Silver Spring Elementary School and Silver Spring International Middle School.  Students from both of these nearby schools enjoy strolling over to Koiner Farm for an afternoon of writing in science journals, helping their local farmer with his farm duties, enjoying a farm fresh snack, observing bees at work, harvesting fresh produce, saving seeds, turning compost piles, finding hidden treasures and more.


In addition to neighborhood schools, small groups of students, campers, scouts, and others are warmly invited to come and explore our beautiful farm. 


Please contact us if you are interested in a field trip and we will gladly help set up a visit! 


We do ask that all field trip participants complete a liability waiver in advance of their visit. Thanks!
