Co-op Spotlight: Vancouver Food Pedalers Co-op

The concept of urban farming has been enjoying an upswing in popularity these past several years. We are accustomed to seeing a wide array of models, from small projects on balconies and in backyards to larger scale operations like community gardens and even multi-site productions like that of Sole Food.



BCCA is the voice of a thriving co-op movement in B.C.

We speak on behalf of the co-op movement, we provide support and encouragement to co-ops, and much more.

Join us and be part of it all.
