Charlottetown Farm Centre
Background: For almost forty years the Prince Edward Island Farm Centre has worked to further the interests of island food growers. Our recently updated Farm Centre facility has a commercial kitchen that is frequently used to prepare foods for meetings and gatherings. The Centre hosts numerous social and cultural events that bring our rural and urban communities together. These include cultural events featuring theatre, food and agriculture themed art exhibitions, musical performances and cultural celebrations
Areas of focus: Legacy Garden is situated on 8.5 acres of farmland located in the heart of Charlottetown. The Garden includes a two-acre, 'Goodwill Garden' which supplies fresh, naturally grown produce to local charities, homeless individuals. On occasion we will also cook and serve delicious meals in the Centre. On another two acres, our 150 community garden plots are carefully tended by gardeners from all walks of life. There is also a children’s garden. Special needs gardeners can also get involved - from the ground up! We are building elevated beds for easy access.
