CoopBioma is a working cooperative based in Montréal, Quebec that specializes in urban agriculture, ecological gardening, edible landscapes, education and advice. In addition to our services, CoopBioma also aims to contribute to positive socio-ecological transformation through a range of community orientated projects, including local food production and the re-appropriation of underused urban spaces for community benefit.
In addition to creating a range of vegetable gardens and other food production systems for clients, we are ourselves food producers. In 2015 we will be cultivating approximately 600ft2 of raised beds in a participative spin farming project. This project aims to serve not only as an important source of fresh, local green vegetables, but also as a demonstration and experimentation site for other urban producers to develop new farming skills.

In development for 2015, is an indoor microgreen production for fresh, healthy food during our cold winters. Learn more
What the word Bioma means?
A biome is a major regional group of distinctive plant and animal communities that have adapted to the region's natural environment - including it's latitude, elevation, precipitation, soil and climate. A biome is made up of smaller eco-regions or communities that rest in a stable steady state and can often be identified by the climax vegetation.
The concept of 'biome' represents our vision of the fundamental relationship human communities need to create and foster with their local environment.
