Deepwater Farms is helping lead the way in aquaponic technology, and bridging the gap between sustainable farming and the local community. We aim to make fresh produce accessible to all families in our community.


Our Beginning

Project Deepwater took root in founder Paul Shumlich's backyard. It began as a project to learn where our food comes from, however, it turned into a study on how to increase Calgary's access to fresh food year round, and ensure local food security. Out of this need, Deepwater Farms was born. 

“A happy and healthy community is not a fairytale. All you need is a seed.”

— Paul shumlich, FOUNDER


After two years, Deepwater Farms has created an eco-friendly indoor environment that can sustainably grow food year round using our own proprietary technology. This means that we can grow and sell produce to community partners who place high value on locally sourced food, without being restricted by climate. 


Our Mission

At Deepwater Farms, our mission is and always has been to grow more food, to feed more people, in more communities. Your support will help Deepwater Farms become both a leader and an educator in urban agriculture


Get Involved

With your support, we will grow and develop into a bigger facility in order to not only provide more restaurants access to our produce, but educate, support, and empower more local growers to meet the growing demand for local Calgary food.
