Springbank Hill Farm Stand 2024

We are pleased to announce that Springbank Hill is partnering with FreshPal Farms, based in Olds, Alberta, to host a weekly farm stand. FreshPal Farms boasts a unique commercial passive solar greenhouse. Unlike traditional greenhouses, a passive solar greenhouse does not rely on solar panels, heaters, or fossil fuels for energy. Instead, it utilizes polymer plastic on its roof and south-facing wall to harness all of its required energy from the sun. The north-facing wall of the greenhouse is constructed with one-meter-thick clay, which effectively captures and stores solar heat, releasing it slowly at night. This innovative design allows FreshPal Farms to cultivate certain plants year-round.

In addition, they enrich the soil through the use of compost and manure while avoiding the use of pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides. The produce sold at the farm stand is picked ripe and brought directly to Springbank Hill, ensuring maximum freshness and quality.

FreshPal Farms will offer their famous delicious thin-skinned tomato varieties, of which they grow almost 30,000 lbs each year. Additionally, they will also have cucumbers, muskmelons, watermelons, peppers, eggplants, pole beans, squash, cabbages, broccoli, cauliflower, bok choi, spinach, green onion, basil, and dill weed during the season. You can find FreshPal Farms’ farmers market stand on Saturdays. We look forward to seeing you there!

Date: Every Saturday. Starting June 15, 2024

Time: 4:00 to 6:00 pm

Location: Valleyview Church entrance (7655 26 Ave SW)
