We are Maddy and Elana the farmers and faces behind City Beet Farm. All our veggies and flowers are grown by us on yards in the Riley Park/Mount Pleasant area in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Maddy is a first generation farmer from Toronto, Ontario. Maddy's farm dreams were born from five seasons of tree-planting with her hands in the soil. Farming, for her, is a way to integrate her entrepreneurial spirit with her love of nourishing people and connecting with community through local, accessible food.
Elana is a first generation farmer, graduate from the UBC farm practicum and soil scientist. She has a strong sense of commitment to land and believes that to grow good food and feed communities we must first take great care of the soil. She feels that food is the way we share our love. Like all the best gifts and trusted medicines, it is best fresh and from hands you recognize.
