KinPark Youth Urban Farm

Photo 2014-08-15, 10 52 54 AMThe 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 Heather Kaye at heather@cowichangreencommunity.org.
