Urban Farmer and Instructor in Kelowna

Green City Acres is a farm with a vision.  In 2012, we grew over 50,000 lbs of food on less than an acre of land, using 100% natural, organic methods and only 80 litres of gasoline.  Every year we strive to revolutionize how we farm in order to reshape our local food system to be more environmentally sustainable and socially responsible.  Follow our journey, as we try to change the world one seed at a time.
