Did you know?

The City of Edmonton has been coming up with innovative food and agriculture strategies. The “fresh” program was started back in 2012 and you can see some of initiatives around the city. Part of the program includes developing and expanding land use for agriculture.

So what does this mean? You will see more communal rooftop gardens and edible landscaping in public areas (i.e. fruit trees).  Areas may be rezoned in the city for horticulture use. Your neighbours might have chickens and bee hives in their yard. Future subdivisions will be likely be designed with these ideas in mind.
