FarmFolk CityFolk is a not-for-profit organization working to cultivate local sustainable food systems across British Columbia. FarmFolk CityFolk is dedicated to growing the local food economy in your community.
For over two decades FarmFolk CityFolk has supported sustainable agriculture and celebrated local food with communities across British Columbia.
We believe that strengthening the connection between farm and city, producer and consumer, grower and eater helps build more sustainable communities. Supporting local, sustainable agriculture helps reduce the environmental impact caused by industrial farming practices and transporting food over long distances. Eating locally year round means fresher, tastier, and more nutritious food while enriching our experience of how and where our food is grown. Eating locally also stimulates our local economy, ensures our food security, and helps conserve farmland, through the best way we know how, by keeping it in production.
We are very proud of the partnerships we have build along the way and the strides we have made together to build a local more sustainable food system in BC. Get Local Powered by Soil Mate is our latest endeavour, in partnership with Soil Mate thousands of listings are being made, and thousands of consumers are using the site each week to find local food and drink producers. Soil Mate is growing rapidly and we are happy to partner with them to bring this service to British Columbia.
Get Local powered by Soil Mate is designed to further educate and foster the connection between consumers and their local farmers, ranchers, fishers, food artisans, brewers, vintners and distillers. The aim is for communities to become as self-sustaining as possible, and reconnect people with the local food options within their region.
