The Urban Farm Permaculture Project
Located in the southwest Calgary community of Palliser, the Urban Farm Permaculture Project is an urban residential property showcasing sustainable urban agriculture, permaculture, forest gardening and large-volume rainwater harvesting & management. As a demonstration garden for URBAN FARM SCHOOL, students are able to see sustainable principles and strategies in action. With a front yard edible landscape and backyard vegetable, fruit and berry production, we are able to not only provide for a significant portion of our own food supply, but also do so in a way that is beautiful, inspiring and nurturing.
Up until 2 years ago, our on-site workshop studio provided the perfect space for us to hold our great line-up of workshops. In keeping with City of Calgary bylaw requirements however, URBAN FARM SCHOOL has now moved off-site, and we have happily forged a wonderful venue-partnership with Greengate Garden Center in south-central Calgary. Thank you, Greengate!
We do still open up our yard for several ECO-YARD TOURS during the summer months, and would love to show you around our property.
