About Us

Our Mission

KC Farm School at Gibbs Road empowers individuals through on-farm, hands-on experiences and vocational education connecting them to the land and soil, food, themselves and their communities.

Our Vision

At the center of its community, the farm generates an inspiring environment transforming the individual and society through community-wide, multi-generational, participatory, and collaborative food projects while it provides job training opportunities, healing and fun.

We focus our programming on our neighbors in Wyandotte County, Kansas but invite all to the farm.

Our programs revolve around Food, Community and Education. We grow organic produce on our 3 acre urban farm and distribute it using a Pay What You Please model and through a 50 member CSA and the use of barter agreements. We provide on-farm agriculture education, job skills training programs and community education through workshops and programming. We invite the community in via our programming that grows backyard gardeners and through community roundtables as well.

We are constantly growing and refining our model based on community input and feedback as we strive to do things with our community instead of simply for them.
