Sky Harvest grows high-quality organic microgreens and specialty greens for restaurants and retail in Vancouver.
Our East Vancouver farm is Canada’s first Certified Organic urban farm, and our greens are delivered by bike to local customers.
We strive to be the most sustainable, efficient and innovative grower of edibles in urban North America.
We grow approximately fifteen varieties of fresh microgreens with a wide range of flavours, colours, textures and a high nutritional value.
The Evolution of Sky Harvest
Founder Aaron Quesnel focused his graduate thesis research on the use of rooftop agriculture to move cities towards sustainability. Along with his partners, he developed a Sustainable Rooftop Agriculture Guide, a user-friendly guide to introduce the concept and benefits of urban rooftop agriculture.
Back in Vancouver, Aaron began to map out the path to creating a rooftop greenhouse in the city, and developing a strong microgreen core business was step one.
With a focus on sustainable design, urban agriculture and innovation, Sky Harvest has seen tremendous demand from Vancouver residents for local and sustainable greens and we continue to expand our operations.
Our day-to-day activities are driven by three core values:
- Lead by example: Providing a strong example of corporate social responsibility in business
- Inspire and assist: Spur the adoption of sustainability principles into others’ operations whenever feasible, and recognize non-traditional return on investments (ROI)
- Innovate: Use innovation to move society towards sustainability and thriveability
Sky Harvest is driven by a rockin’ team of dedicated employees and volunteers whose unique talents shape Sky Harvest’s development.
