Our Mission


Sunshine Farm is Certified Organic, and uses this setting to offer Vocational Development Opportunities to Adults in the Community Living Sector.

Person Centered Philosophy

Opportunities based on interest and choice is the foundation of our philosophy, respecting the rights of the individual, and building self respect.

The farm provides a mixed setting for hands on experience with a multitude of activities. We accommodate to a wide variety of interests such as cooking classes, music classes, literacy, computer, woodworking, greenhouse, equipment operation, etc..

The educational opportunities at the farm occur in the gardens, as well as  in the various buildings (shop, barn, greenhouses, etc.). The setting is diverse, offering a chance to learn about equipment, woodworking, plants, seed collection, greenhouse work, harvesting, labelling, math skills, weighing, packaging, as well as the classes mentioned above.

Opportunities based on interest and choice is the foundation of our philosophy.  Respecting the rights of the individual, and building self respect.

These opportunities are funded by Community Living British Columbia.


Since 1987 Sunshine Farm has aspired to epitomize  a sustainable  family farm which also serves its  community;

  • by promoting  organic food production and leading by example  by growing nutritious high quality organic food;
  • by promoting agricultural seed as our common cultural heritage, that which should be maintained,   as  an    invaluable genetic resource;
  • by encouraging local food production and consumption whether on farms or gardens or a pot on the balcony.

Sunshine Farm  is a venue where educational opportunities and skill development is a part of embracing all members of our society (see Community Living  link).

Safe Seed Pledge

At Sunshine Farm Seeds we sell only what we grow at the farm and therefore do not knowingly sell genetically engineered seed.  We believe that transgenic manipulation poses great risk biologically, politically, economically and culturally.
Sunshine Farm is Certified Organic in British Colombia by the Pacific Agricultural Certification Society 16-504, a member of the Certified Organic Associations of BC.  We are also proud members of Canadian Organic Growers, Seeds of Diversity Canada and Seed Savers Exchange.
Organic Agriculture provides for the optimum in sustainability, building rather than depleting soils, growing and not manufacturing food and working with natural systems rather than fighting them.


All Sunshine Farm Varieties are germination tested and guaranteed for one year form the date of purchase.
