About Us
Located on 172 acres of the stunning North Mountain, just outside of Canning, NS, the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts is a cultural hub for artists, community members, and more! We are also a registered farm and kitchen! Ross Creek is home to stunning gardens and offer homemade meals to our campers, workshop participants, and all those who visit! We also run a community food program where meals are made weekly and delivered to those in need in our community.

Giving voice through the arts, the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts is a unique institution in Canada, bringing together the best in arts education for youth with community and professional artist programs!

The Ross Creek Centre for the Arts is a research and development centre for the arts of all disciplines and cultures, and is proud to help facilitate the development of new art from around the world in wonderful facilities on a spectacular farm in rural Nova Scotia. We are a non profit association and rely on donations, earned revenue and public investment. We are proud to help facilitate the development of new art from down the road and around the world in a spectacular setting in rural Nova Scotia. Come visit. You won't be disappointed.

Ross Creek would like to acknowledge our gratitude to be in Sipekne'katik, one of the seven regions of Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq people.

The Ross Creek Centre for the Arts and Two Planks and a Passion Theatre are both independent organizations, operating under the umbrella of the CoastArts Association, a registered charity. All funds raised through WFM2Go directly support our organization and mission to share the arts and inspire our community.
Our chefs Emily, Carol, and Jennifer are always preparing something delicious in the kitchen- often with fresh produce or preserves from our own gardens! We also take great pride in teaching young people about home-growing garden and farm to table kitchen practices through our Youth Leadership Program!

Every December we make tasty homemade frozen cookie dough to sell as a fundraiser for Ross Creek (and now you can get it delivered right to your door)!

We have a rotating crop each year but have grown such fabulous items as:

-Brussel sprouts
-Cut Flowers
-Green Onions
-Ground Cherry
-Mixed Greens & Kale
-Root Veggies
