Gabriola’s on-line organic buying club is entering our 15th year of service.

We as a community and society face a number of unprecedented challenges and adapting to this while maintaining progress in areas that we acknowledge need change.

As one small piece of the puzzle supply line organic foods continues to stay the course set in 2006

Our triple bottom line mandate encourages feedback from our community members.

Over the past few years this has resulted in the move to “Earth First” compostable packaging wherever possible.

This year as a limited option to using recycled cardboard boxes for delivery we will offer repurposed food grade buckets. If you wish to participate in the bucket return program I will be happy to provide more information.

Our participation in Gabriola Agricultural Co-op’s online market has been temporarily suspended due to an evolving family situation in Vancouver. We hope this situation will be resolved in the near future, in the meantime slo-foods will continue it’s regular monthly order periods.

slo-foods will continue to sponsor Gabriola Agricultural Co-op’s membership in British Columbia Association of Farmers Market’s we donate directly to administration of the nutrition coupon program.

We are looking forward to suggestions and requests from from our current and new members as we collectively move toward a more sustainable future.
