Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in Teaching and Working Farm Master Plan

Kobayashi + Zedda Architects


The Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in Farm is a 37 ha site located a few kilometres outside of Dawson City in the Yukon Territory. The Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in are undertaking a planning and design process to further develop this farm and its programs focused on community, culture, and food.

Urban Food Strategies worked with a team of designers led by Kobayashi + Zedda Architects, to develop a Master Plan that included a wide range of programs including education, farming, and foraging.  Specifically, Urban Food Strategies facilitated a team workshop, developed the program and examined the site requirements to meet program aspirations, assessed user groups and seasonal use patterns, established a 10+ year phasing plan, and drafted a project evaluation framework.
