Urban Agriculture Plan

The City of Fort Saskatchewan has begun work on developing the Urban Agriculture Plan (UAP) and is inviting residents to get involved in the planning process.

Urban agriculture is the cultivation, processing, and distribution of food in and around an urban area, such as cities. Examples of urban agriculture may include, but are not limited to:

  • Community gardens;
  • Green roofs;
  • Edible landscaping;
  • Urban beekeeping;
  • Urban chickens;
  • Hydroponics;
  • Aquaponics, and more.

The UAP will provide education and tools that create awareness about where food comes from, enhance local food sustainability and diversify the economy through agriculture-related and value-added industries.
