KinPark Youth Urban Farm
Kin Park Youth Urban Farm is a youth-led urban agriculture demonstration site and working farm, based on the principles of permaculture and organic agriculture. We aim to train young people how to grow food and run a business; provide increased access to locally produced food in a sustainable manner, and deliver educational programs to community members of all ages on various aspects of urban agriculture.
As we work to transform the park into an edible oasis, we encourage more community members to use and enjoy the space. We offer tours, volunteer opportunities, internships and can host a variety of workshops to suit your needs. For more information, contact Laura Boyd-Clowes at email@example.com.

Registration is now open for our newest program, Growing SusTEENability, a series of FREE after-school workshops and hands-on sessions designed to support Duncan girls in pursuit of their dream jobs! This is a series of 32 meet-ups and workshops after school and over summer break at KinPark Youth Urban Farm, Cowichan Green Community office and kitchen, and the Cowichan Agricultural Seed Hub, for self identified girls ages 13-18. We will be providing food, resources, mentorship, loads of hands-on skill building, and expert workshop facilitation from local ‘Green’ business owners.
With support of their peer group, and through mentorship from our staff, interns, and volunteers, participants will be encouraged to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to inspire and educate other youth and people in their community, and ultimately (should they choose), to develop their own sustainable business.
