Founded in 2009, Sole Food Street Farms transforms urban land into productive agricultural landscapes. We have grown to become one of North America’s largest urban farms, producing over 30 tons of fresh food annually that is sold to the public and donated to community partners.
Sole Food trains and employs vulnerable residents from Vancouver’s inner-city who are facing complex barriers to work. Individuals are trained and given the opportunity to work with living soil, grow fresh food, develop new skills, and spend their days in an environment that supports the healing of body, mind, and soul.
Sole Food models the economic and social possibilities for urban agriculture, and demonstrates the vital connections between farming, land stewardship, and community well-being.
