LocalMotive Organic Delivery
Thomas Tumbach is an innovative and hard-working entrepreneur from the Okanagan region, with a degree in Agriculture and Sustainable Land & Food Systems from UBC. Thomas has spent most of his life involved with farming, and started LocalMotive in 2005 to helpdevelop local food distribution networks that connect organic farmers with consumers in the Interior regions of BC. He has a passion for producing high quality, fresh organic vegetables, and is well acquainted with the opportunities and limitations that face producers in the region.
Thomas is enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge and passion for food with others, both in the kitchen and in the field, and is keen to help inspire a future generation of food producers and local eaters. Thomas believes that the current paradigm shift towards "knowing where our food comes from" ultimately stands to benefit our society as a whole… because as people spend more time growing, cooking and eating together, the more likely they are to be happy and healthy. Thomas is married to Celina, and has 4 lovely children, enjoys playing hockey in the winter, music in the summer, and is the founder of the non-profit Jam Camp Society.
