About:

Northlands Urban Farm School offers a free, fresh-air educational experience that connects Edmonton-area students of all ages to urban agriculture. Northlands Urban Farm is a 1-acre plot in the heart of the city that grows greens, houses chickens, and supports a beehive.

Through an hour and a half of tasting and touching, looking and listening, students clearly come to understand how food can be produced even in the middle of the city.
