About Grow Calgary
Grow Calgary is Canada’s largest urban community farm. We are a nonprofit organization that grows fresh produce for social agencies in Calgary with food access programs. Thanks to our volunteers and the generous spirit of the community, we have managed to donate to over 40 Compassionate Food Access Agencies in Calgary, with 95% of our recipients being women and children. Our ultimate goal is to ensure that all residents of Calgary, especially those who are vulnerable and living in poverty, have consistent access to healthy, local food.
Founded in 2011, we saw our first harvest in 2013. As of May 2021, we are celebrating 8 years in the fight against food insecurity! We believe in our fundamental rights to access food and shelter. More than that, we view urban agriculture as a feasible, immediate response to food access & food dignity among food-insecure Calgarians living below the poverty line. We donate 100% of the fresh food we grow.
Farm Animal Rescue Mission
Our animal rescue farm houses a number of animals that needed a new home. We have goats, pigs, sheep, chickens, roosters and a horse. No harm on the farm.
