Hillhurst MicroFarms – Business Spotlight

Featured Video Play Icon

Jen Miller, awesome entrepreneur and owner of  Hillhurst MicroFarms, graduated from the Women’s Venture Start-Up Program (WVP) in the spring of 2014. Since then, she has been busy sod cutting, SPIN farming and selling her delicious, locally grown leafy greens at farmer’s markets and through SPUD.ca. She’s been passionate about gardening from a young age and is thrilled to finally make this hobby a business.
In addition, she’s teamed up with other SPIN farmers in an urban farmer non-profit and alliance, YYC Growers & Distributors. Together, they assemble and sell weekly community shared agriculture (CSA) boxes to help support food security and a market where they all can thrive.
Get a glimpse of Hillhurst MicroFarms and the lovely lady behind it, in the above video made by fellow WVP graduate Kaylene Newsom.
