    We are young farmers who believe that the food we eat should come from where we live. Only a year into farming we have found that the local food market has lots of room to grow and are fast growing to produce as much as possible. We have plowed and tilled new land and are building greenhouses to continue where we left off after a fantastic summer in 2013. We work two farms both within walking distance of Smithers BC, we have also adopted a few satellite greenhouses in the area that we have put to good use.

    We grow a wide variety of veggies in the field, in greenhouses and indoors supplying greens to a bustling market all year round.

    We are looking for for energetic people who want to take advantage of the outdoor lifestyle here in Smithers. We are very laid back and we do not expect more then 15-20 hours a week from our volunteers. We are situated among some of the best outdoor recreation in the world. Come see how the magic starts, experience first hand the joys of planting potatoes and onions, the euphoric bliss of a kale forest, and the satisfaction that only rows upon rows of spinach and lettuce can bring. The area is also saturated in music, all kinds, lots of musicians everywhere, I even play the flute. Come and play with plants!
