Vicky Lee

"We look forward to working with this group of passionate farmers to provide a space where we can support a community with locally grown food right in the heart of the city. We will aspire to keep your hearts, minds and bellies full."

Amber Yano

“Having a designated yard among other farmers feels like the sense of community that has been lacking from my home business. I’m so excited to raise bees in another urban ecosystem, engage in community events to meet like-minded individuals and have the autonomy to operate the bones of my operation on my own schedule. The most valuable asset gained will be the ‘hive-mind’ of other hard working individuals. Thanks for taking me in, HRF!”

Lisa Menzies

Donate

An active farm takes a lot of resources and support, and we feel very fortunate to be part of a warm and collaborative community. To improve our capacity to meet the growing food access needs of our city, and expand our activity offerings, we are currently seeking support in the form of financial contributions and in-kind donations from organizations who align with our values.

Through our generous partner Parks Foundation Calgary, we are able to offer tax-deductible receipts for all financial donations to our farm.
