fresh - Edmonton's Food and Urban Agriculture Strategy

Approved by City Council in November 2012.

Implementation Plan

fresh implementation has been underway since 2012. Implementation has included:

Farmers’ markets provide important access to local food and horticultural products.
Hello, Let’s Eat! is a project with the goal of bringing neighbours together over the act of sharing food.
As a volunteer committee, the Council advises and acts on matters related to the implementation of fresh: Edmonton's Food and Agriculture Strategy.
Urban beekeeping can help improve pollination for plants, which in turn helps to improve the overall biodiversity and resilience of our city.

The Urban Hens program enables residents to keep backyard hens.
