Pony Rides

Meet Ghost - one of Granary Road's neighbour horses. She is 8 years old, and will be your best friend if you let her! She will be giving rides THIS SATURDAY from 11:00am to 1:00pm in our Active Learning Park. 100% of the money Ghost raises will go to Woods homes, a non profit children's mental health center that branches out in a few locations around Alberta. (Calgary, lethbridge, Fort Mcmurray, strathmore)

They provide over 40 different services to kids and families struggling with mental health, including private counseling, learning centers, short stay facilities (in certain locations), live in treatment, etc.

Animals and Apples

Do you know where our leftover apples go, or any apple waste goes? To our animals! Help us feed this messy snack to our furry friends up at the farm.

Bobbing for Apples

This is a fun and safe event for kids to bob for apples and win prizes! Kids will be blindfolded and be given a pair of tongs, and need to pull an apple from the tub of water! Each apple is worth a different prize.
