More Info

Veteran’s Farm Therapy Program

Care farming has been shown to be an effective means of therapy, and has not only proved to be beneficial towards this particular group of citizens but for Calgary as a whole. It promotes and increases awareness of PTSD and also increases social sustainability by providing a better quality of life for stakeholders (Veterans) involved with VETFarm.

The Veteran’s Farm Therapy Program (VETFarm) participants are current and former Canadian Armed Forces members.

Healthy Heroes Program

Grow Calgary has been able to contribute to hundreds of thousands of meals annually since its origin and we have had much success in regards to community building, the creation of a safe and welcoming place for all, as well as the provision of fresh food for vulnerable Calgarians and Veterans through our commitment to compassionate farming.

Grow Calgary and its 30,000 volunteers are proud of our efforts in providing fresh food to those in need.
