Groundbreakers Collective is both a social enterprise cooperative and a charitable organization. The cooperative coordinates a Winter Harvest Box which provides customers with fresh seasonal produce and value-added products from September through May. Based on a CSA (community supported agriculture) model, customers pre-order and pre-pay for their box as well as work on local farms, helping connect producers and consumers and creating a sustainable local food network and resilient economy. Through the charity, Groundbreakers provides educational programs and hands-on workshops on food preservation as a means to learn about and make the most of local food all year round.

I think the future of Smithers’ business community is bright. There’s a new generation of people starting out and taking over old businesses in the community, supplying new ideas and breathing life into this town. The people here are friendly and support each other, but I think that the best thing about our town is the diversity of people here.
