Urban farms are not about how many you feed, but how you feed them.
Urban farms connect us to our food, our land and our neighbors.
We believe that farms should be like parks... one in every neighborhood and open to everyone!
CKC is working to create a network of neighborhood farms that support a more equitable and sustainable local food system. To do this, we need the support of our community. Sustaining donors are critical to any nonprofit, but particularly to a small conservancy, like CKC, which is committed to preserving and maintaining urban farms in perpetuity.
To become a sustaining donor, mark the PayPal box that says "Make this a monthly donation."
"Koiner Farm is my neighborhood farm." - Derrick, 9
