Alpine Edible Schoolyards (AES) is the hub of urban farm and school garden installation, maintenance, and education in the Bow Valley. AES works collaboratively to nurture experiential inspired learning, local food production and community education. AES envisions a future where all students in the Bow Valley have access to a school garden. AES produces a variety of greens and vegetables for schools as well as local businesses.
In partnership with Canadian Rockies Public Schools (CRPS), AES has installed and operates two urban farm/school gardens in Canmore: one on the rooftop of the Canmore Collegiate High School, and one in the schoolyard of Lawrence Grassi Public School.
