Westport Commons Farm will be relocating after the 2023 season. Sustainable Development Partners Kansas City, the owners of the property, are moving forward with plans to build apartments on the farm site. We are working closely with their team to make sure that the farm is relocated to a comparable site with conditions that will limit the disruption of our services.
We have greatly enjoyed our time on this land and are extremely grateful to everyone who invested time and money in bringing this project to life and sustaining it over its five-year run. Our partnership with the development team of this site is strong, and they will provide assistance to us when the time comes to relocate existing farm assets.
Volunteer shifts, the June-October farm stand season, and special events will continue through the end of 2023. For more information on volunteering, visit here. For all other inquiries, contact us here. We hope to see lots of folks out on the farm this season!
Westport Commons Farm is an urban farm in the heart of midtown Kansas City.
In the Spring of 2018, Cultivate KC began working hard to improve the soil in the old ball field located at 39th Street and Gillham Road and transform it into an organic production farm. Today, Westport Commons Farm continues to grow into a food and farming education hub as well as a resource center for community growers. It’s a space where growers, students, businesses, and volunteers from all around the city connect with their food and with each other.
The 1.25-acre farm has welcomed thousands of people for tours and volunteer opportunities. Visitors learn the importance of soil health, eating locally, and advocating for local food in their communities. They learn to become growers themselves.
In 2022, Cultivate KC completed a capital campaign to include an outdoor learning classroom with composting area, a community greenhouse, a mobile tool library, and a walk-in cooler on the farm.
