Using excess urban land to build community, grow food, and take climate action – Edmonton Urban Farm
Since 2014, the Edmonton Urban Farm (EUF) has helped make Edmonton a greener, more sustainable city. It has transformed 2 acres of excess urban land (abandoned, strewn with garbage and invasive weeds) into a productive space providing 300-plus people and their families with nutritious, locally grown food. This reduces the city’s carbon footprint AND it serves as a model for other municipalities.
In 2022, the EUF was recognized for their environmental achievements at the 31st Annual Emerald Awards in the land category, sponsored by The Alberta Real Estate Foundation.
