Another instalment of the video series we've partnered with has launched! Produced by Fire and Light Media Group, "Meet Your Urban Farmer" is a series that takes an in-depth look at different urban farmers in greater Vancouver, bringing you a little bit closer to the food you eat!
Meet Jordan from Southlands Heritage Farm, a unique nature and agricultural reserve in Vancouver that most people are surprised to learn exists! They offer a number of camps, programs and workshops for youth right in the city as well as a weekly farmers market.
There is always something happening at Southlands: pigs rooting for grub, young farmers and campers exploring the farm, a blacksmith putting new shoes on a horse, or someone pressing apples into cider.
You can visit Southlands and find out more about them here - southlandsfarms.com
If you've never had the opportunity to meet the wonderful array of passionate individuals behind the urban farming movement, and the wonderful food they grow for the community, stay tuned as we meet other urban farmers in the Vancouver Metro area. This will be an opportunity you won't want to miss.
Support your local urban farmers (and local rural farmers of course), and know where your food comes from.
