Fort Whyte Farms
Since 2003, the award-winning FortWhyte Farms program has been working with marginalized youth, using the practice of sustainable urban agriculture to build confidence and leadership skills, provide employment training, while instilling values of individual and community self-reliance. FortWhyte Farms is a social enterprise – a business whose purpose goes beyond a purely financial ‘bottom line’ to see profit in the far reaching social and economic benefits that extend into the lives of individuals, families and communities.
FortWhyte Farms sells honey produced directly from their 38 hive on-site apiary. It also operates a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Share program which sells in season mixed vegetables.
