Forget the grocery store. Local food for your family delivered to your door.
Why do we do it?
We must eat well to be well & to live well. And what does it mean to eat well? It means to nourish our bodies with food free of chemicals and toxins but rich with vitamins and nutrients, grown in a way that also nourishes the earth by building soil, and nourishes our community by stimulating a local economy.
Who is Farm Box?
We are a passionate, dedicated crew of foodies & farmers, box packers & delivery drivers, blog writers & recipe testers, email answer-ers & website maintainers!
Farm Box is a grass-roots food initiative that sprung up out of a desire to eat well & live well in the Bow Valley. In 2010, Chrystel began working with Blue Mountain Biodynamic Farm in Carstairs AB, harvesting food to bring back to Canmore for about 20 families. In 2011, Avni came on board and the program grew – and continues to grow – feeding more and more families from more local, sustainable farms.
Committed to improving many links of our communities’ food chain, Farm Box is involved in an urban farming initiative on the roof of the Canmore High School. Working alongside grower Christian Wright, Alpine Edibles has produced hundreds of pounds of greens and herbs in it’s first growing season.
Beyond local cultivation, Farm Box works within local bio-regions to establish a sustainable supply of fresh, organic food to our communities. Our network includes urban farmers from Canmore and Calgary, vegetable, grain, poultry & dairy producers from Alberta, as well as fruit & vegetable growers from Southern and Central, BC.
