KC Farm School at Gibbs Road provides on-farm, hands-on opportunities to engage in sustainable agriculture experiences in the heart of Wyandotte County on our 14-acre urban farm. Our mission is to
empower individuals through on-farm, hands-on experiences and vocational education connecting them to the land and soil, food, themselves and their communities.
We offer programs for individuals of all ages, ancestries and abilities including: Ag Explorers for youth aged 4-8; Jr. Growers camp for youth aged 9-14; Ag Apprenticeships for youth aged 15-20; Job Skills Training programs; Volunteer opportunities; Community Workshops; and other events based on the season and collaborative opportunities. We offer all of our programming using a Pay What You’re Able model to ensure equitable access to the programs and food we grow.
Engaging on-farm opens up lessons about environmental restoration, climate action, local food system awareness, stewardship, connection to the land and environmental education.
