Meet the farmers, taste homegrown honey, feed a laying hen, learn about vegetable gardening and worm compost, and so much more.
Explore Edmonton manages the Urban Farm while almost 100 people in twenty independent groups farm it. Farmers grow food for their families and communities; their amazing gardens form an outdoor classroom for Explore Edmonton educational programs, like Urban Farm School and Open Farm Days.
In 2019, 5000 people visited Edmonton Urban Farm. Visitors met farmers, tasted honey, fed a laying hen, explored a vegetable labyrinth, checked out the worm compost, smelled herbs, ate edible flowers, examined bee hotels, and more.
The Edmonton Urban Farm is a unique place for growing food and learning about growing food. It increases both food security and food literacy in one shot!
