Canadian Small Farms & Urban Agriculture

Heritage Farm is an educational nursery in Northwestern Canada that has been growing, saving and researching heirloom seeds and plants for generations. We offer workshops and resources for new growers to learn about permaculture design, organic gardening and small farm production.

Each year a limited supply of open pollinated heritage seeds suited for northern Canadian gardens is selected and made available on a first come first serve basis for students and growers. Be sure to sign up below for email updates about how to start seeds, grow plants and care for your new garden as you begin your journey towards a sustainable, healthy lifestyle.

An Old Fashion Christmas

An Old Fashion Christmas

 It’s the simple things that we remember. Not the gifts, not the glitter, not the parties or the packages. It’s the special moments with family and friends. The comforting silence of the forest. Sleigh bells ring as the horses trot through the winding trails. A glimpse of sunlight reaching through the trees, lighting up the snowflakes that gently fall  as we pass under. A chickadee calls out.

Enjoy the simple things. Slow down, just breathe, and truly experience everything around you. Be aware of the sounds, the scents, the smiles and the people who bring joy to your heart. These are the things that we remember.

Wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday season.
