Let’s Expand Edmonton’s 1st River Valley Food Forest! (4th Annual Planting) @ MacKinnon Ravine Park
Aug 26 @ 4:00 am – 8:00 am

4th Annual Planting

Imagine walking through the river valley and stumbling upon thousands of edible trees and shrubs. You’ve probably found Edmonton’s River Valley Food Forest.

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.

Join us on August 26th

The 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.
