At Grow Calgary, 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. Grow Calgary is a 100% volunteer-run community farm; We donate 100% of the fresh food we grow to compassionate social agencies in Calgary with food access programs. Thanks to our volunteers and the generous spirit of our community, we have donated to over 40 Compassionate Food Access Agencies in Calgary, with 95% of our recipients being women and children.
From planting seeds to building greenhouses, each day at Grow Calgary represents a new opportunity to learn. Mother nature is our true boss, so please come with a flexible mindset. Task-lists change from day to day depending on the time of season & weather conditions. Some tasks may include seeding & transplanting, mulching garden beds, watering plants, pest control, or harvesting produce.
