  • Alberta Open Farm Days provides Albertans with a backstage pass to visit farms and ranches across the province.

    Alberta Open Farm Days is about ranchers and farmers inviting their urban and rural neighbours to share stories, see demonstrations, and learn more about the people producing their food.

    The weekend also provides guests the chance to sample and experience field to table culinary delights at foodie events taking place in rural communities across the province.

    Watch this video or visit albertafarmdays.com for more program information.

    Alberta Open Farm Days is presented by Ag for Life, Alberta Association of Agricultural Societies, Alberta Culture and Tourism and Agriculture and Rural Development in partnership with Travel Alberta.

  • The Stony Plain Multicultural Heritage Centre City Slickers program is a powerful one-day event that introduces more than 1,200 grade 4 and 5 students annually to the many facets of agriculture and draws in some 250 volunteers. Children develop an understanding and appreciation for food firsthand – where it comes from and how it is produced – from gate to plate. The City Slickers Program brings together  farmers, producers and consumers. With the continuing support of Ag for Life, a scalable delivery model has been developed.
