Edmonton Urban Farm
The Edmonton Urban Farm is a 2-acre farm in the heart of Alberta's capital. Established in 2014, the Urban Farm connects people to food and farming within the city limits.
Welcome to Edmonton Urban Farm
Explore Edmonton manages the Urban Farm while almost 300 people in twenty-five 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 2022, 7500 people visited Edmonton Urban Farm. Visitors met farmers, tasted honey, 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!
Our urban farmers put in 100s of hours each season and harvest 1000s of pounds of produce.
In 2022, Explore Edmonton’s Urban Farm was awarded the Alberta Emerald Award in the Land Category - an award which recognizes projects that demonstrate excellence in sustainable land use.
For 30 years, the Alberta Emerald Foundation has created a legacy of elevating the environmental achievements of our province, setting an example for all to follow. The Emerald Awards showcase those who are raising the bar in addressing local, regional, and global environmental & climate issues. The nominees in 2022 were all incredibly strong, and it is a real accomplishment that the Edmonton Urban Farm came out as the winner!
