ABOUT THE LAND

Morrison’s Farm is an established garden that has been farmed organically and with biodynamic principles since it was established in 2004. The growing space is about 16,000 square feet (about 0.4 of an acre) and is fully fenced and irrigated. There are five greenhouses, (30×60 feet, 20×60 feet and three that are 10×20 feet). There is also a propagation shed (8×10) and propagation greenhouse (20×8) that includes a warming table, grow lights and a 3×6 working table. The farm is complete with a building for vegetable washing with a walk in cooler, and a machinery shed for storage and the included tractor-tiller and tools.

The farm is located in Wildwood, in the beautiful coastal setting of Powell River, BC, a small town feeling kind of place, with a population of 20,000 from the ferry landing at Saltery Bay to Lund, at the end of Highway 101. Powell River’s climate is similar to Vancouver and is great for year-round growing, with annual precipitation of about 1000mm. The area, situated at the edge of Desolation Sound, is ideal for nature lovers – with fishing, boating, scuba diving, hiking trails, mountains and lakes which draw many visitors to the town.
