Let's Expand Edmonton's 1st River Valley Food Forest

  • MacKinnon Ravine Park AB T5N 3M7 Edmonton Canada (map)

On a South facing slope of Mackinnon ravine, lies Edmonton's first publicly planted food forest; a self-sufficient edible ecosystem, that captures water, increases biodiversity, reduces maintenance costs, cleans the air, sequesters carbon, builds community, and (let's not forget) grows food.

After three years of planting, the Edmonton food forest now contains thousands of edible, native trees and shrubs; saskatoons, high bush cranberries, low bush cranberries, currants, elderberries, pin cherries, chokecherries, beaked hazelnuts, and raspberries.
