Seed+Soil grows fresh produce on land East of Calgary. Our produce is grown in an environmentally responsible way using intensive techniques for farming in small spaces. The Seed+Soil team was brought together by their enthusiasm for unique seeds, interesting vegetables and a love of eating good food.
Michael Soucy founded Seed+Soil in 2013 in his backyard in Calgary. His background in the culinary world has pushed him to seek out, grow, and cook with new varieties of plants. His passion for farming came from growing up in the country and spending afternoons learning and eating from his grandmother's garden.
Monique Switzer grew up in a family of gardeners and do-it-yourselfers. This passion to grow food and feed others has made a significant mark on her life and has prompted her to take many different courses throughout the years; ranging from food security to botany. Seed+Soil has allowed her dream of growing good food with good people to come to life!
Our goal is to excite people’s palates by reintroducing long forgotten varieties and awaken curiosity for uncommon produce.
We want to thank all of our amazing CSA subscribers, restaurants, and volunteers for their continued support. A very heartfelt and sincere thank you goes out to Janet Walker for her everlasting excitement, knowledge, encouragement, guidance, and financial support. We love you ALL!
