Urban Homesteading Workshops at Koiner Farm on the last Wednesday of each month April through October (weather permitting). These free workshops are led by our Interns and include topics ranging from "soil testing" to "pest identification" to "tips for harvesting garlic."


Big thanks to all of our talented interns, volunteers and neighbors who have graciously shared their wisdom with us over the years! The workshops and tours hosted at Koiner Farm are powered and led by members of the community.  As a community land trust, we are dedicated to providing safe, open, green spaces where communities can actively engage with their land, their food, and each other.  Workshops and tours are a great way for the community to do this!


If you or someone you know has an idea for an educational workshop or tour about sustainable eating and/or farming, please send an email to with your idea.  We are always excited to share traditions, practices and new ideas that help build better local food systems.
