Farm Bound is a local and organic food delivery company sprouted from a permaculture design course hosted by Element Eco Design at the Monashee Community Coop. Students were challenged to come up with an idea that harnessed their strengths to help the community. We noticed that a lot of people wanted to eat local and organic, but with their busy lives couldn’t easily access it in one place. From there, Farm Bound quickly grew to service 18 different communities throughout BC. Not a lot of people know this about us, but the biggest part of our business is servicing smaller northern communities. People in towns like Fort St John don’t have access to all of the produce and artisan goods like we do here in the Okanagan, especially organic. You should see their smiling faces when we show up with a truck full of organic peaches and cherries for them!
We are committed to supporting our local farmers and reducing our waste.
Our waste reduction program includes many aspects. The favorite among staff is offering U-Boxes to UBCO students. We offer affordable boxes using #2 grade produce. We have saved 100s of LBs of produce from the landfill this season, while giving students access to fresh organic food on campus.
