Northlands Urban Farm is a unique place in the heart of Edmonton with lots to explore. Five independent groups grow food here in some amazing gardens. Visitors will tour the Urban Farm with gardeners throughout the day. They’ll enjoy seeing large vegetable gardens, herb beds, a pollinator patch, solitary bee hotels, a tree nursery, a plant labyrinth, compost, honeybee hive, and flock of hens!
Visitors will also have a sneak peak at the Northlands Urban Farm expansion!
Northlands Urban Farm packs a LOT into a 1-acre space. Visitors can pick up tips on growing food, herbs, edible flowers, pollinator plants; gardening techniques including no-till, mulching, berms, watering; identifying plants; composting and vermiculture; keeping urban hens; growing fruit trees and heritage trees in Edmonton. The hosts are a group of dedicated farmers who have decades of gardening experience and tons of knowledge to share. Tours are informal and INFORMATIVE!
