Assiniboine Food Forest is a form of land management area that mimics a forest. The area includes a walking trail that makes its way to Crow's General Store. Dave Barnes, the owner of AFFI, also provides nature walks on Sundays as well as maple syrup tours annually (March or April, weather dependent).

There are two ways for the public to access the Assiniboine Food Forest:

-Park at Crow's General Store. Find the riverside trail that connects Crow's to Assiniboine Food Forest. This trail is approximately one kilometre in length, with a creek crossing midway.

-Park at the corner of Rosser Avenue East and 17th Street East (being careful not to block access to neighbours drive ways). Walk into Assiniboine Food Forest using the roadway located at the southeast corner of the intersection.
