Our Story

IN 2015, WE SAW FIRST-HAND HOW THE HIGH COST OF FRESH, HEALTHY FOOD WAS HURTING CANADIANS IN THE NORTH.

 

 

We wanted to help, but there were no feasible food system solutions on the market. So, we decided to build one ourselves. Today, we support people who believe in better, more efficient food systems. For the past three years, we've worked closely with communities across Canada, wherever they are, to collectively determine how to grow food locally.

At the Growcer, we pride ourselves on how easy our systems are to use. Even if you don’t have growing experience, you'll be able to produce fresh veggies in no time with our expert training and support. Our technicians will be there when your system arrives to help get you started, and our network of farmers can offer insights along the way.

All of the produce is grown using plug-and-play, hydroponic growing systems that we manufacture specially for you. Hydroponics is a form of soil-less growing that allows us to grow fresh produce from seed in as little as six weeks. The roots grow in nutrient-rich water, which means the plant is more efficient at growing the fresh produce that we love to eat!

Our approach is one of empowerment and collaboration. We provide you with the tools and technologies you need, while supporting the process with expert advice. Every community is different, and consequently, every project we take on is unique and tailored to local goals and needs.

Join our network and bring fresh food to your communities. We can’t wait to meet you!

“We are relying completely on air travel for all of our food to come into the community. If there is a blizzard or something where planes were not able to land, having this kind of food production happening onsite in our community, I think, is really incredible.“
