Frisch Farms – First Garden Dig 2013

Frisch Farms - First Garden Dig 2013

Starting the laborious task of digging up some of the roots from a hidden tree stump amongst trailing blackberry bushes and ivy in one of our new gardens for 2013!
It is still a little early, but I am eager!
Thanks to our volunteer, Eri for helping to cut back some of blackberry bush and ivy to clear some way for a garden!

Dirt from the dig.

Close up of the blackberry stems.  Very sharp so use heavy duty gloves for handling these!

Hyper-Local Urban Farming in Vancouver with Frisch Farms

Frisch Farms is committed to hyper-local farming – defined as vegetables grown, harvested and enjoyed within a 3 km radius of the headquarters in Shaughnessy on 16th in Vancouver, Canada.

When you support a hyper-local farm like Frisch Farms through the CSA share program you can enjoy nutritionally rich and amazingly fresh vegetables on a weekly basis throughout the summer.
Get in touch with us to learn more about the 2013 CSA share season. The hyper-local farming model is sustainable for the long-term future and practically eliminates any carbon footprint during the food production process from seed to harvest. This also saves thousands of litres of water and gasoline in the process and is in line with the Greenest City 2020 Action Plan set in motion by the City of Vancouver.  I want your support!

Hyper-local is what Frisch Farms is all about.
Your garden, your vegetables, my passion.

Frisch Farms is committed to maintaining your edible gardens for optimizing food production while minimizing ecological impact on the city, the country and the planet.  We plan to reduce the total water and gasoline used to grow, harvest and distribute vegetables relative to food production outside of the city.

Frisch Farms is committed to reducing the average “farm-to-plate” distance from 2400 km to 3 km. Our vision is to create a hyper-local and sustainable vegetable garden system that is inter-dependent on the members within the Frisch Farms CSA family. Frisch Farms delivers the vegetables via bicycle to all members as part of the hyper-local strategy.
