We recently spent some time on harvest day with the amazing, caring and passionate people of Fresh Roots Urban Farm. If you don't know about Fresh Roots, we highly recommend you visit them.
Talk about being local. Fresh Roots grows food in urban school gardens and neighbourhood yards, educates children on farming, and then feeds the schools and the local community.
You can subscribe to their Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program and get in-season vegetables all year round. Any East Vancouverite would be lucky to have their salad bowl filled by Fresh Roots Urban Farm.
If you vote for Local Foods Grocery & Meals at This Space, we'll hope to work with Fresh Roots to fill our shelves with fresh produce.
For more information on Fresh Roots Urban Farm, check out their website at freshroots.ca or give them a call at 778-862-FARM (3276).
