Westerner Park has strong agriculture roots as one of the largest agricultural societies in Alberta and what better way to showcase our agriculture then through a celebration of food. Westerner Park Urban Farm Festival is a new event with a focus on education, encouraging and inspiring people to be knowledgeable about food production and preservation. Through an interactive and experiential environment, Westerner Park will create an Urban Farm experience on our property.
Presented by Red Deer County. On May 26, Steel Pony Farms assisted Westerner Park to plant our new Urban Farm, which Westerner Park will give 100% of what our farm produces back to the community through organizations like Red Deer Food Bank and Hope Mission.
Thanks to the generous donations from our sponsors, Red Deer County, Peavey Mart, Holiday Inn Hotels & Suites, Canar Rock Products, Blue Grass and A’bunadh Seeds. With your donations the Urban Farm is in full bloom!
Tours of Westerner Park's Urban Farm are free and on August 20 during the Westerner Park Urban Farm Festival there will be a petting zoo!
Westerner Park Urban Farm Festival, presented by Peavey Mart, is going to have a full day of activities, workshops and demonstrations on food production and preservation. The cost of admission is $5. The community will learn what they can grow in their own backyard, how to make jams and pickles, urban chicken keeping, urban beekeeping and so much more!
The Urban Farm Festival, presented by Peavey Mart, will take place on August 20 in conjunction with Alberta Open Farm Days. The Festival will be an environment where local producers can showcase their products and share their agricultural story.
