Wise Earth Farm
Kelowna, British Columbia
As of 2022 our team will be operating as a family business including Raine Gagnon (Mother) , Ariana Gagnon, Gabby Gagnon, Miranda Gagnon, (Sisters) and Myles Ferber.
Established in 2011 by John Hofer and Brenda Paterson, Wise Earth is a two-acre, urban vegetable farm located at the corner of KLO Rd and Mission Creek in Kelowna, BC.
We farm using Regenerative Agriculture principles which is an approach to food and farming that strengthens the vitality of our soil, increases biodiversity, improves water cycles, and supports carbon sequestration.
We believe that growing delicious and nutritious food comes from the health of the soil. Through our studies in soil microbiology with Dr. Elaine Ingham of the Soil Food Web we learned how to apply these regenerative concepts and are making and applying biologically rich compost and it’s teas, encouraging diversity of insects and animals on the farm, and geeking out with a microscope to look with awe and wonder at the life in healthy soil that is beyond our normal vision. And we are blessed to be adjacent the Mission Creek and have its fresh clean waters as our main irrigation source for our crops.
Being Certified Naturally Grown guarantees that we don’t use any pesticides, herbicides or synthetic fertilizers. At Wise Earth Farm we are working to create an environmentally sustainable, socially responsible farm-business model that is equitable for us farmers, and our community members.
