CENTRAL EXPERIMENTAL FARM
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.
