Support for Banana Producers in Peru

Added on April 6, 2017

Discovery Organics (Vancouver) is one of our key suppliers for imported certified organic produce. They have formed direct relationships with many suppliers in South America, and have been purchasing bananas directly from growers' coops in Peru for several years. Randy Hooper of Discovery Organics has sent out a plea for help for their Peruvian banana producing partners due to the current flood situation, which has devastated the region. Discovery Organics is NOT a charity and can NOT provide tax receipts. What they CAN do is get the money directly to the producer coops who can make a real difference in these growers' ability to rebuild their farms, communities, and their families' futures. Urban Harvest will be matching customer gifts up to a total of $1000 until Wed, Apr 12th. Please contact Lisa at if you would like to learn more or make a donation (cheques may be made out directly to Discovery Organics).
