CEN­TRAL EX­PER­I­MEN­TAL FARM

Ottawa Business Journal - Ottawa at Home - - LIVING | NEW & NOTABLE -

Spring has sprung at one of the best places to cel­e­brate a new sea­son of re­birth – Ot­tawa’s own Ex­per­i­men­tal Farm. Now, a new and dy­namic Learn­ing Cen­tre is be­ing opened in an his­toric build­ing at the Farm to pro­vide year­round pro­gram­ming and ex­hi­bi­tions fo­cused on agri­cul­ture and food lit­er­acy. For the next five years, it will high­light links to health, sci­ence, tech­nol­ogy, en­vi­ron­ment, food safety and sus­tain­able agri­cul­ture prac­tices.

The Learn­ing Cen­tre will in­clude an ex­hi­bi­tion gallery, learn­ing labs, lec­ture hall, and im­proved vis­i­tor and group ameni­ties. And that’s not all that’s chang­ing: the mu­seum will be re­named the Canada Agri­cul­ture and Food Mu­seum, to fo­cus on food sci­ence and the tran­si­tion from farm crops to Cana­dian ta­bles.
