Laura is an urban gardener, tenderfoot farmer, photographer, entrepreneur and owner of ethical seed company Cubit’s. A born and raised city girl from Toronto with a background in the fine arts it’s only logical that she has recently convinced her family to try their hands at farming.

As author and photographer of www.cubitsorganics.com Laura shares her appetite for local food, ethical food production, organic vegetable gardening and cooking whole foods with her young family.

Cubit’s is a family business and Laura’s husband Ryan works along side her while they raise their daughter Rebecca and son Robin.

{ our name }

Cubit’s takes it’s name both from a name in our family tree and a historical Toronto market farmer named Cubit Sparkhall. He owned a large piece of land in East End Toronto, approximately where Withrow Park is now. Cubit was uniquely named after the cubit, an ancient measurement once used to measure building materials and small amounts of land; a cubit is about 18 inches, measured from the tip of your thumb to your elbow.
