What We Stand For

A lot has changed since Robert Service wrote “The Spell of the Yukon”. Today, we believe that abundance will flow when communities work together to create vibrant local food systems. It begins with our deep gratitude for First Nations who have called this land home since time immemorial, and who lead the way towards food sovereignty. We also share our gratitude for the land that provides so much. In this spirit, we commit to serving Northern communities by sharing our expertise and offering exceptional products to achieve greater food sovereignty.

Do you have your heart set on a particular exotic plant—succulent or tropical, however, you know you often struggle to remember to water your houseplants? We know the struggle very well! Next time you’re preparing soil for a moisture-loving plant, consider adding some vermiculite to the mix. Vermiculite is a mineral that will help hold the water in your soil, and offers excellent nutrient exchange.
