KinPark Youth Urban Farm

Photo 2014-08-15, 10 52 54 AMThe Kin Park Youth Urban Farm, an initiative of CGC, 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; through education programs provided to community members of all ages on various aspects of urban agriculture.

As we slowly 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.

Fresh in the Garden Pantry

We are currently selling beautiful KinPark preserves in the Garden Pantry Shop. Our famous zucchini and green tomato relishes are now available. Apple jelly, garlic and squashes also available. Come on in to pick up some jars before they all disappear. The perfect gift!

 

The 2016 camp season

This year’s KinPark kids camp was a success! Running for 10 weeks, we hosted over 200 kids and learned about all aspects of gardening, cooking healthy foods, pickling and baking.
