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.
