Successful Kelowna SPIN farm uses only a half acre – 24,643 square feet
Green City Acres is comprised of 10 small and large farm sites
Green City Acres is a pedal powered urban farming/edible landscaping company dedicated to sustainable food production. We utilize back yards and urban spaces to grow organic produce for local distribution. All of our farming operations including farm maintenance, transportation of crops, restaurant deliveries, weekly farmers markets, and moving of our 300 lb. rototiller, are all done with our bikes and trailers. Our mission is to foster social and environmental change through the production of local organic food, with minimal use of fossil fuels, and to help, teach, and empower people to start growing their own.
Weekly farmers market, and restaurant sales.
We are at the Kelowna farmers market every Saturday and Wednesday. Right now we’re producing a lot of salad greens like red and green leaf lettuce, spinach, rouge d’hiver, red deer tongue, kale, swiss chard, mizuna, arugula, mustard greens, as well as lots of scallion and radish. For the summer and fall season, we’ll have a full pallet of different vegetables, such as multiple squash varieties, cucumbers, beans, peas, edamame, tomatoes, tomatillos, potatoes, beets, carrots, red/spanish onions.
We’re still looking to supply a few more restaurants for the 2010 season. Along with your weekly produce orders, we offer a free compost pick-up/drop-off service. All your kitchen vegetable scraps will be composted on our farm sites to be eventually used as soil amendments for future crops
