About Wakamow Valley Community Food Farm

The Wakamow Valley Community Food Farm is a one-acre garden and orchard built from the philosophy that healthy food grown with love can change lives. The farm is located in the beautiful Wakamow Valley and is a collaborative effort between local nonprofits and community minded funders. The produce grown at the farm is distributed to five partner organizations (Moose Jaw and District Food Bank, Riverside Mission, Hunger in Moose Jaw, Moose Jaw Transition House and Moose Jaw Multicultural Council). Currently, these partners have limited access or funds available to provide recipients with fresh produce.

The Wakamow Valley Community Food Farm is urban, open to the public and focuses on food security. The farm is supported by volunteers and engages with various community groups by hosting farm tours and educational workshops to help strengthen local food systems and gardening knowledge. The farm is also a model for small-scale agriculture. Systems are based on a “human-scale” and the farm uses planting methods that are best suited to the location, end purpose and needs of our partner organizations.
