Organic Master Gardeners
We garden using organic methods - that is, we don't use synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. We are in training to be certified Master Organic Gardeners through the Stony Plain Heritage Agricultural Society, the Gaia College and the Society of Organic Urban Landcare.
Our name is a nod to our education system and the one-room community school that was located nearby until the 1950s. That school was attended by Alberta's Dad and actually started by her Great Grandfather. He canvased the neighbourhood for kids, lobbied the provincial government and donated the land. Since he was a skilled carpenter, he helped build it too. In 2016, we began transforming a small cattle pasture into a market garden. In 2017, we planted an 800 tree shelterbelt and grew our first vegetables for CSA members.
To provide our members with delicious, fresh vegetables and space to get their hands dirty learning about local food. Our long term vision includes using the latest restorative agriculture techniques, modern water management systems, four-season vegetable growing, and the addition of animals like sheep, chickens, and cows. For now, we are happy growing vegetables.
Can we visit?
By invitation only. This is a fourth-generation farm - with all of the old equipment and buildings that come with having a farm in the family for 100 years. We need time to get it ready for visitors. Follow us on social media for regular updates and pictures throughout the season.
