Southlands Heritage Farm..
Please visit us, and explore the farm, meet the many animals that live here, see the variety of food plants, and look into the world of life in the pond. Treat our growing foods as food on the shelf at a grocery store, And be sure to ask someone before touching or feeding any animals! Our mission is to grow and protect local food systems, while providing visitors with a chance to experience farm life and understand the unique and beautiful animals and ecosystems in Southlands.
If you see someone pulling weeds, sorting pumpkins, or digging a hole - offer to help out! We're a community farm, so when you're here, we'd rather you thought of yourself as a fellow farmer and not a visitor to a park. We run a number of fun skills based workshops and camps for all ages. Please explore our website to see what's going on!
Remember: We are a working farm with all the associated learning experiences. Keep kids close. And be respectful of all the animals and plants.
School Strike Farm Camp
Fall camps are here! Camps will run all day starting Tuesday September 2nd and continue until regular classes resume. Refunds will be provided for unused camp days. Register online here.
Garbage Free Farm?!
Starting September 1st, 2014, the farm will have a "Pack-it-in, Pack-it-out" policy with no garbage cans on site. We feel this will help everyone to reduce their waste and impact on the earth. Let us know what you think! The farm will continue to offer recycling and compost (although we don't want to encourage the use disposable and recyclable bottles either!
Farm Markets Fridays
From 10:30am-4pm every Friday! Fresh produce, baked goods, farm produce, fruit, and eggs. The Young Farmers campers will be running their own market stall at our market - come out and support your future food growers.
We'd rather be outside farming than updating this website... so join our mailing list (below) for infrequent updates on sweet events for you, the kids, or the family.
Site: 6767 Balaclava Street at West 51st. Ave.
