Experience downtown Edmonton through a different lens with The Mustard Seed.

Not only learn about the rich history of Edmonton’s oldest neighbourhoods, and some of the issues that impact the lives of our most vulnerable neighbours struggling in poverty and homelessness, but experience the beauty of our community – the people who live here, and the organizations that work to enable each person in our community to not only survive, but be recognized for thier unique gifts, strengths, and contributions. We invite you to open your eyes, your ears, and your heart as we walk together to make a better future, one you can help bring into the world!

We want everyone in the community to experience these stories, which is why we made this walk a donate what you can. If you have the means, we greatly appreciate your support. Funds raised from this walk go to support our shelter and dinner to door programs. These programs offer not only a warm meal and a roof over one’s head but also connect those experiencing homelessness or poverty with holistic support services to walk them through this unprecedented time.

The stories in each location are best experienced there in full before moving on, so do take the time to take in and really feel your surroundings and the stories that made them what they are today.
