TOPSOIL was founded to create an innovative approach to food production – one that values environmental sustainability and the local economy. Our strength has been bringing together people from varied professions – architecture, engineering, farming, local government, property development, and the restaurant industry – who are as passionate as we are about creating something new. Urban agriculture is a revolutionary way to provide food that is healthier for us, cares for the environment, and just simply tastes better. For us, that’s what the eat local movement is all about.
Northstar Organics grows certified organic fruit and vegetables on our 10-acre farm in Central Saanich. Our food is safe and nutritious; grown without harmful synthetic pesticides or synthetic fertilizers. We specialize in greenhouse vegetables and year-around greens. Seasonally available from our fields are a wide variety of vegetables such as peas, beans, squash, broccoli, zucchini, carrots, beets and sweet corn. Certified organic and selling exclusively within the capital region district, our farm is committed to sustainably growing food for the people of Greater Victoria.
Vitality Farm is a certified organic farm and proud member of the Lohbrunner Community Farm Cooperative. We have turned our passion for growing organic foods into a small-scale organic farm, growing over 40 different vegetables and strawberries for our community over the past 4 years. The fertile flood plain of our farm enables us to grow abundant, high-quality crops, which we are proud to display at our local farmers markets, provide to award winning chefs and to our Community Supported Agriculture Harvest Box members.
