Touring Carmen’s Urban Farm Permaculture Project in Calgary, Alberta


Carmen Lamoureux is the owner and founder of Urban Farm School and the Urban Farm Permaculture Project. Not only that, but we are SO lucky to have her as one of the main instructors for our annual Online Permaculture Design Courses.

We sent Ben, one of our staff, to get an updated video of Carmen’s property for you all to enjoy and learn from. For 30 years Carmen has been living at this site and it’s amazing to see how her systems evolve and improve over time…

In addition to this yard tour we had Ben get a whole bunch of other videos with Carmen so stay tuned for those in the coming weeks! 😉
