About Jes Urban Farms
Meet Troy and Sharon, the dynamic duo behind Jes Urban Farms. The personal stories of these two green thumbs are rich with experience and passion for gardening and sustainable food production. Wherever these two lived, they would create some kind of a garden or if that wasn’t possible, would help out in their friends’ gardens.
Together they have created Jes Urban Farms, located on the Sunshine Coast, BC to inspire, educate and sell vertical growing, Aeroponic Tower Garden® systems in both residential and commercial sizes. Since moving to the coast they have enjoyed both soil-based and Tower Garden® growing.
Because of the increasingly unpredictable climate, the lack of affordable, arable land, water shortages in the summer, food being shipped long distances, (and the subsequent carbon impact), and especially the lack of locally grown food in the winter, Jes Urban Farms sought out solutions. They believe the answer to all these problems are solved using the Tower Gardens®.
“I found Troy Edwards to be reliable, knew his business, and can be trusted.”
– George Grafton, Tower Garden Owner, Gibsons, BC
In the summer of 2017, the managers of Persephone Brewing Company, came to see Troy and Sharon’s Tower Garden® farm, and they were impressed with the quality and quantity of food that could be grown in a short period of time using the Tower Gardens®.
Troy and Sharon had spent the previous year proving that this growing system works in the Pacific Northwest, and now it was time to showcase what they were doing to the public. With the generous offer to use one of the greenhouses at Persephone Brewing Company, Jes Urban Farms initiated their operation there on November 1, 2017, and had tremendous success growing food that winter.
Jes Urban Farms has a vision to inspire & help people to grow their own fresh food, year round (even in Canada)
and we believe the Tower Garden system is the solution!
