3rd Annual PlantingOn 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 city maintenance costs, cleans the air, sequesters carbon, builds community, and grows food.After two years of planting, the Edmonton food forest contains thousands of edible, native trees and shrubs; saskatoons, high bush cranberries, low bush cranberries, currants, elderberries, pin cherries, chokecherries, beaked hazelnuts, and raspberries.Join us on August 13th as we add thousands of edible perennials to this expanding project.

LocationThe food forest is located along the mixed-use path of Mackinnon Ravine Park and can be accessed by foot from multiple directions. Click here for a detailed Google Map of the location and its access points.
