CKC recognizes that our global food system is unsustainable for farmers, consumers and the planet.  Solving the world’s agricultural problems will require innovative, healthy, caring individuals, armed with the experience and understanding to tackle these challenges. 

In order to maximize the benefits that urban farms bring to a community, CKC supports three programs areas.

  • Land Stewardship

  • Farm Management

  • Education


These three program areas are inter-dependent and collectively provide unique opportunities for people to connect, explore, discuss, learn and innovate in the pursuit of a safe, smart and sustainable food system.​

"Urban farms should no longer be considered a temporary or interim use for vacant plots.  They are the future and need to be protected."- Hannah Sholder, CKC Founder and Director of Land Stewardship
