FarmFolkCityFolk has launched a networking site for local food and agriculture called www.SharedHarvest.ca/MetroVancouver where farmers, food processors, grocers,and consumers can list Wanted and Available ads. There are 22 categories and over 300 products & services. Membership is free. Posting ads is free.

If your farm is outside Metro Vancouver, it is still possible to use the Shared Harvest site. Email a letter to Erin (email below) and explain why Shared Harvest would benefit you and your area. Include your postal code.

Soon there will be a network of Shared Harvest sites in BC to support the trade of food and agricultural products within and between our Regional Districts. Metro Vancouver is the first. Support and funding will enable 3 more to be added in 2010, with more in 2011.
