About this event

Volunteer Hours & Time Commitment

Volunteers get fully orientated on site by a garden leader during one of our regular volunteer drop-in hours. Sign up for our mailing list to be notified of when our drop-in hours are set each season! There is no minimum time commitment necessary, however, we do like to see volunteers once/week if they can make it. This helps us to communicate any changes at the farm and it's a better experience for volunteers as it allows you to see the farm progress through out the season and to be involved in each step of that progression!

What to bring

For a volunteer session we suggest you wear clothes that you don't mind getting a bit dirty in case you're kneeling in the dirt or it's muddy after a rain (this includes shoes that you don't mind getting a bit dirty). Also, bring gardening gloves. And a reusable bag (grocery store bag) to put some produce in for when you go home! A water bottle is good to bring as well (we'll provide extra water at the farm for re-fills). Other than that you don't need anything (we provide all the tools necessary).

How to get to Prairie Urban Farm

Prairie Urban Farm is located within the University of Alberta's South Campus in Edmonton, AB. Our farm is next to the Dairy Research Facility on 118 Street and south of 60 Avenue.

Vehicle

If you are coming to Prairie Urban Farm by vehicle, you can access 60 avenue by turning off 61 avenue going towards the U of A, or turning off 113 Street southbound.

Public Transit

The farm is very easy to access by public transit. The South Campus/Fort Edmonton Park LRT Station is a 15-20 minute walk away and many buses stop at this transit station as well.

Bicycle

Many of the roads around and within South Campus are bicycle friendly including 113 Street and 122 Street.

Organizer Prairie Urban Farm

Organizer of Regular Work Bees

Prairie Urban Farm is a one-acre, mixed crop, community food system in the University of Alberta's South Campus.

We believe that the lack of resilience of our agri-food systems is one of the biggest challenges facing our communities today. Our goals are to demonstrate and provide skill-building opportunities in alternative, regenerative ways of growing food within the city and to grow food security: access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food.

If you would like to know more about our project or be involved in anyway, send us a message! We are always looking for more people to come out to the farm, learn about growing food, and be involved in anyway they can.
