Urban agriculture can be defined as the growing, processing, and distribution of food and other products through intensive plant cultivation and animal husbandry in and around urban areas.

Following the creation of the Regional Agricultural Master Plan (RAMP) by the Edmonton Metropolitan Region Board, the Town of Stony Plain is creating its first Urban Agriculture Plan (UAP) to provide guidance on urban agriculture development at the municipal level, and practices within the town that consider future climate change impacts. The UAP is intended to identify how urban agriculture can be supported in Stony Plain, as well as the key components to determine the role of urban agriculture in Stony Plain's future. 

Components of the plan
  • What is urban agriculture and what does it look like in Stony Plain now and for the future?
  • How will climate change impact urban agriculture in Stony Plain and how can we best prepare for these changes? 
  • Policies, strategies, and actions related to urban agriculture options and practices.
