Our History

In 1989, Sustainable Food Edmonton started as the Personal Community Support Association, a non-profit charitable organization. In 2005, we launched City Farm and very soon afterwards, brought Little Green Thumbs to Edmonton. In 2009, the Community Garden Network joined us. 

By 2011, we had changed our name to Sustainable Food Edmonton to better reflect our programs and work in the community.  Seeing a need and a gap in service, we launched the Urban Ag High project in 2013 to build a community of practice around urban ag programming in Jr/Sr high schools. In this same year we partnered with Edmonton Community Foundation to help the LIVINGBridge Urban Intervention obtain project funding.

Sustainable Food Edmonton remains committed to developing and offering programs that offer rich experiential opportunities to children, youth and adults and that focus on food, community, and the planet that sustains us.
