About Glorious Organics
Fraser Common Farm and Glorious Organics are in their 33rd farm season—these farmers are pioneers in the organic farm movement and have contributed immensely to the community over the past three decades. From organic certification standards to starting Lower Mainland farmers’ markets, to creating a worker-owned co-operative farm business and opening up land access, Glorious Organics and Fraser Common Farm have paved the way for the local food movement in BC.
Fraser Common Farm and Glorious Organics are also the birthplace of FarmFolk CityFolk!
Glorious Organics is the first ever farm to grow and sell mixed salad greens in Canada! They have their system totally dialled, and this is an amazing opportunity to learn from the experts. Don’t miss out on the farm tour to learn more.
The farmers at Fraser Common Farm also offer lots of educational and community events such as long table fundraising dinners, kids summer farm camps, and skills-based workshops. Come out on August 7th to get a glimpse of what they are up to and get inspired!
