Farm / Edmonton Urban Farm | Participating in Open Farm Days 2023
Farm Type: Urban Farm
Spend time with us at the Edmonton Urban Farm!
The Urban Farm is a 2-acre paradise in the centre of Edmonton. Our farmers (all 300 of them!) cultivate unique vegetables, gorgeous flowers, and fascinating stories. Come and wander the paths, chat with the farmers, and learn something new.
While you’re here check out our honeybee observation hive, chicken coop, worm compost, greenhouses, medicine plant beds, and bunny hutch. We’ll have chicks hatching too! It’s a great place for families, including seniors and little ones.
We’ve got some special activities going on during Open Farm Day.
