We are thrilled to announce that Koiner Farm, our flagship farm located in downtown Silver Spring, is officially permanently preserved under a conservation easement!!  Read more about our quest to protect Koiner Farm here.

CKC Farming is a small local land trust, dedicated to protecting urban land for the purpose of agriculture and education.  CKC Farming was founded in 2018 specifically for the purpose of protecting Koiner Farm (currently the only urban farm in Montgomery County, MD).  We are working to create a network of urban farms throughout Montgomery County that are protected from development and accessible to the public, so that generations to come can connect with food and farms.  

Our vision of a farm in every neighborhood mirrors that of parks, schools and libraries.  These are places that bring communities together, provide immense public benefit, and help create a bright future for our children.  

Now more than ever the world needs healthy, knowledgeable, caring individuals armed with the experience and understanding to create a smart, equitable, and sustainable food system.  We believe that neighborhood farms can help prepare the next generation of innovators, consumers, voters, and more to meet the agricultural challenges that lie ahead.
