Project Description

Greenchain Consulting, in collaboration with Sustainability Ventures and 02 Planning and Design, is currently working on a food hub concept for the Northlands area in Edmonton. Northlands consists of 126 acres of land close to the downtown core of Edmonton. It has a long history of agriculture and home to one of the oldest Canadian agricultural societies. Over the past few years several facilities and organizations have vacated the area leaving the City with an opportunity to develop the site. One goal was to locate a food hub to serve the local agricultural and food sector. Greenchain and partners engaged with dozens of key stakeholders and researched the food and agricultural opportunities to the area. The project team is currently providing food hub recommendations to the City of Edmonton.
