Visit the Farm

We are located in the industrial neighbourhood of Highfield in Calgary, just outside of the City Centre- close enough to see the Calgary Tower! During our farm hours, please feel free to explore in a self-guided manner using our interperative signage, but please keep in mind that our site is a collaborative and ACTIVE space and certain areas may be inaccessible depending on our schedule of operations. Please book a tour for a guided look around. 

Though we are working hard to ensure our farm is accessible to all, please note the following: 

  • Our site utilizes a lot of mulch/wood chips and surfaces may be uneven 

  • We do NOT currently have an accessible porta-pottie

  • There is NO running water on site and VERY LIMITED drinking water on site

  • We are primarily OUTDOORS. Dress for the weather!

ALL VISITORS MUST CHECK IN AT THE OFFICE UPON ARRIVAL ON-SITE.
