BUFCO POPS UP IN DOWNSVIEW!
Urban Agriculture and the good food movement is growing
and The Backyard Urban Farm Company is growing with it!
Now it's even easier to grow your own food as BUFCO takes the retail plunge.
Announcing the grand opening of the BUFCO Pop Up Garden Shop where you can buy everything you need to get your organic vegetable garden growing.
- DIY raised bed kits – 100% local Eastern White Cedar
- Organic and heirloom seeds, seedlings, and soil amendments
- Expert advice and garden consultations
BUFCO is fast becoming the go-to vegetable landscapers in Toronto, providing high quality, hand made raised bed, and in-ground garden installations, garden planning, planting and maintenance services, as well as organic and heirloom seeds and seedlings.
Last year BUFCO's on-site service expanded to include Raised Bed Kits for Do-It-Yourselfers who prefer to set up their own gardens. We received many requests from DIYers wanting to pick up their kits rather than have them delivered. That’s when the idea of a Pop Up shop was born.
This is a first-of-its-kind, boutique style, temporary veggie gardening store that opens from March 30th to the end of June, providing a much-needed shopping alternative to the big box stores. BUFCO is sharing the space with FRESH CITY FARMS (FCF), a social enterprise that unites eaters and growers through their organic food box delivery service.
Across the street and next to the FCF greenhouse and 2 acres of farmland, BUFCO will build a raised bed demonstration garden as well as a small greenhouse where hands-on gardening workshops will be held. The hope is to attract people from all over Toronto to this exciting hub of organic gardening activity.
