Urban Cultivator News

dsc_0408_edited_rbg-1024x681-4473467 Since we opened Living Produce Aisle back in February, we had one goal: to provide the community with healthy, organic, and sustainable food. Using Urban Cultivator appliances, we're able to grow that good food on site, seven days a week. We've been able to make fresh smoothies and salads that are harvested to order, as well as grow healthy flats of microgreens for our customers to take home. Many of those who have visited are wowed by the store, lined by illuminating Urban Cultivators. We're proud of what we've put out through Living Produce Aisle.

screen-shot-2015-05-30-at-5-13-29-pm-6082629 Our new storefront, Living Produce Aisle, is the very first in its kind in the entire world. We grow fresh, healthy microgreens, vegetables, and herbs right at the space using Urban Cultivators. Those live greens are then sold by the flat, or, added to our salads or smoothies. It's an incredibly unique concept in that we're growing the very food we're selling. Not only is this never-before-heard-of concept appealing, though, but these live greens are also great for you. A crowd favorite is the Morning Sun—a refreshing drink that's perfect to start your day with. The sweet but tart smoothie has been a hit since the store opening. Here's what goes into LPA's Morning Sun smoothie:

The 10-kilometre run took 40,000 people—Vancouverites and those visiting alike—all around downtown Vancouver, across two bridges, down two beaches, and some daunting hills. The Urban Cultivator team decided that this was the year that we made our foray into the competitive world of professional racing.

This past weekend marked the worldwide launch of our new project, Living Produce Aisle. Located in the heart of Yaletown, LPA offers those in the neighbourhood with fresh, nutritious food, selling smoothies, salads, and flats of live greens. It was a beautiful, sunny day, and many people came by to experience what LPA had to offer, trying out samples of our smoothies, like the Temple Tonic and The Re-up, as well as our new salads. Thanks so much for all those who came to our grand opening—you made it an incredible success! Take a look at the photos from our wonderful, festive weekend below.
