May 15, 2013, on an 11-acre parcel of land just west of Canada Olympic Park, a group of dedicated volunteers turned the soil, nurtured plants, harvested the first crop on Canada’s largest urban agricultural farm.
Our goal is to grow fresh produce for Compassionate Food Access Agencies in Calgary, to ensure all Calgarians have access to healthy, local food. Thanks to the generous spirit of our community we’ve reached our first milestone, but there’s still more to grow.
Canada’s largest community farm, Grow Calgary, grows food for social agencies with food access programs. Everything, 100% of what we grow is donated. 100% of our production is grown by volunteers. 95% of our recipients are women and children. 100% of our recipients are vulnerable and living in poverty.
