Aucu vote pour l'instant.

The City Farm School is an initiative to develop partnerships and expertise in urban agriculture on the island of Montréal. Our aim is to promote a cultural shift towards more resilient communities able to meet the challenges posed by climate change by focusing on local food autonomy. With the support of Concordia University, The City Farm School (CFS) offers seminars, discussions, internship placements, volunteer opportunities and popular education style teach-ins on permaculture, organic crop planning, producing seedlings, mushroom cultivation, composting, pest management, organic plant nutrition, rain water harvesting, and other topics of great public interest, promoting a strong focus on experiential learning and the cultivation of a can-do spirit.

A major component of the programme is a eight-month urban agriculture training program designed to prepare participants to become leaders in the emerging urban agriculture movement. To achieve this, the school will address three main areas:

i) Organic food growing – learning how to grow food in the city,

ii) Food Politics – understanding and addressing food security and food sovereignty and

iii) Creating sustainable communities and engaging in community engagement.
