Nicole Spring & Jorge from "Veg in Yeg" Oct 16, 2018 6:00 PM

Veg in Yeg is a social enterprise currently based in Garneau, Edmonton. They use a vacant lot, courtesy of the St John's Institute, to grow vegetables, herbs and flowers for local consumption. They don't want anyone to miss out on this fresh, local goodness, so all of our products are priced as "pay what you want". You can find our produce stand, or order a customizable veg box for delivery (within University, Garneau, Strathcona, McKernan and Queen Alexandra neighbourhoods).

About Nicole & Jorge:

Nicole and Jorge are recent immigrants to Canada and adventuring companions.

Nicole grew up in Manchester UK, and moved to Edmonton in 2015 to pursue a career as an academic research scientist. It was an awesome job, a dream of an experience, but in the end got a little burnt-out and decided to follow some other passions - sustainability, social good and building community. During her time in Edmonton, she has met many brilliant people who are advocates and activists for local and sustainable food systems. Feeling inspired to take backyard-gardening to the next level, she then met some urban farmers - including Ryan Mason of Reclaim Urban Farm, who farmed the same vacant lot in Garneau from 2014-2017. It just so happened that Ryan was relocating, so the plot opened up for Veg in Yeg.

Nicole may have kicked off this project, but she couldn't have done it without Jorge...

Jorge is from Bogotá, Colombia, and moved to Montreal 9 years ago to study a Master's in Engineering, before finding work at a small engineering firm in Edmonton. He is a mechanical engineer by day and an enthusiastic, devoted and supportive farm-hand by night. He loves soccer, rivers, kayaking, camping and making home-brew beer. Fun fact: you can see his smile from a mile away.
