The Loutet Urban Farming Project – Located at Rufus Avenue and East 14th street in the City of North Vancouver this new Urban Farm development is a partnership program being conducted by the U.B.C. Urban Architecture Dept., the City of North Vancouver, and the North Shore Neighborhood House – Edible Garden Project. This volunteer supported urban farm initiative is a spectacular example of the new energy and innovation for environmental sustainability and food security growing within our community today.
The Loutet Farm operates it’s own public access vegetable market on Saturday mornings, from June through Oct., and may soon be able to add locally produced Artisan Honey to it’s sales inventory. The Loutet Farm manager, Heather Johnstone, and local beekeepers are currently in the planning stages with the City of North Van. for the creation of a bear proof Honeybee Apiary to be built at “The Farm” this spring, with new honey sales to be held in September.
A public information meeting date will be announced shortly to provide more details about the project and to gain community input concerning the proposed Honeybee Apiary. We hope that you can attend and show support for this new addition to “The Louet Urban Farm”!
