For the day-to-day needs of commercial urban farmers

“MOBIEL is designed to support the day-to-day needs of commercial urban farmers in Vancouver. The local urban farming community is comprised of a flourishing demographic of friendly, passionate people who seek more efficiency than community gardeners, yet do not require a tractor to get from one end of their farm to another.


Beginning with the basic features of a wheelbarrow, this cart has the added benefit of organized tool storage, and the ability to be attached onto the back of a bicycle to carry goods across longer distances; from the farm to the market or from one plot to another. Mobiel carries the narrative of city farming through its unique functionality and its distinctive character.”
