The Commons is a partnership with the South Osborne Permaculture Workers' Co-op
Meet the worker's co-op members:
The South Osborne Permaculture Workers' Co-op is a group of Winnipeg urban farmers sharing 1 hectare of dedicated space in the South Osborne Commons. SOPWC grows fresh, local, chemical-free produce in South Osborne to sell. Founded in 2015, their aim as ‘eco-preneurs’ is to show that sustainable urban farming can be a viable way to make a living, and to provide a model for other communities to borrow from and make their own. Each member of SOPWC contributes 100 hours of volunteer time each year to SSOCC.
The SOPWC farmers practice ‘permaculture’ which means: caring for the earth, caring for people and ensuring that everyone who contributes has the opportunity to benefit from the harvest. This group has a low carbon footprint is proud to say that the produce actually heals the soil it comes from.
The other 70% is sold to local restaurants to compensate our members. As these spaces are public, we welcome you to visit and see what we are doing.
