KinPark Youth Urban Farm
From humble beginnings in 2013, the KinPark Youth Urban Farm has blossomed into an urban agriculture demonstration site and working farm, based on the growing principles of permaculture. Open to all members of the public, we utilize this space to increase local food access, train young people in sustainable agriculture, and create youth-led opportunities that serve the environment and surrounding community. As we work to transform the park into an edible oasis, we also strive to create connections with community partners. We collaborate on workshops, events and programs that bring value, skills and connection to Cowichan families and youth.
Are you interested in getting involved? KinPark is open for tours, volunteer opportunities, internships and can host a variety of workshops to suit your needs. For more information, contact Lauren Ziffle, KinPark supervisor at email@example.com.
