"I support CKC Farming because I can see that climate change is affecting our ability to produce food and CKC helps my family think about agriculture on a more personal level. It feels like our choices make a difference."
- Neighbor of Koiner Farm

The Charles Koiner Conservancy for Urban Farming (EIN: 83-1145521) is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit. All donations to CKC Farming are tax deductible to the extent of the law.
Now, more than ever, the world need healthy, knowledgeable, caring individuals, armed with the experience and understanding to build a smart, equitable and sustainable food system.
Your donation to CKC Farming will help endow the next generation of workers, voters, consumers, and innovators with the tools and knowledge they need to solve the agricultural challenges of tomorrow.
Urban farms connect us to our food, our land and our neighbors.
The benefits of urban farms run deep. Much like art, music and recreation, working on an urban farm improves one's mental, emotional and physical well-being . We believe that farms should be like parks - one in every neighborhood! We are working to create a network of urban farms that support a more equitable and sustainable local food system for the many, not the few.
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 that is committed to preserving and maintaining urban farms in perpetuity.
To become a sustaining donor, check the PayPal box that says "Make this a monthly donation."
"Koiner Farm is my neighborhood farm." - Derrick, 9

"Koiner Farm is really like a double blessing because I am able to come here and have my moment of peace, but I am also able to give back to my community and that makes me feel really good." - Frieda, Farm Volunteer
