What the Okanagan Urban Jungle is About...
Okanagan Urban Jungle, servin’ up ‘Jungle Vibes’ since 2018 across southern BC. Owned and operated by Kali Yanke, a Saskatchewan raised green thumb growing an Urban Jungle right here in Kelowna, BC. A company that began as a spare bedroom “Jungle Operation” and became a Mobile Plant Shop, where we stock hundreds of tropical plants and natural plant care products. And of course, a trailer... which easily attends every local Farmers’ Market.
We stock hundreds of different tropical houseplants and sell thousands across BC through local markets, and our Online Jungle Shop. Every week, we import new plants to allow them 2 weeks under supervision before we send them home to new plant parents, ensuring nothing but the healthiest plants.
Imported tropicals are treated with the upmost of care, including; removing most of the potting soil that plants arrive in, washing foliage and removing residues, treating for pests and flushing with a vitamin supplement.
The premium treatment for all of our tropical houseplants.
Meet Ēostre, the Jungle Trailer
This beauty is a 1973 Sprite Muskateer that was purchased on Boxing Day of 2019 by owner, Kali, and converted into this sweet jungle trailer!
One of the best features is a potting station, so not only can propagation and transplanting take place during early market days, but plants can easily be potted for the customer. This makes the plant buying experience that much better because there is no need for extra potting soil, messy transplanting, or buying supplies in multiple locations.
This beauty is stocked with natural plant care products and a huge assortment of tropical houseplants wall to wall.

Online Shop is CLOSED FOR THE SEASON!
Come on down to the Local Farmers' Market, and help us SUPPORT LOCAL!
With all the restrictions, it seems we have become more disconnected from our makers and customers. It sucks. We miss being able to meet every one of our customers, from a safe distance, and respect everyone's views on the Covid-19 Pandemic. However, we will keep the Online Store Closed until late fall when we will no longer be attending the Kelowna Farmers' Market. If for any reason you are not able to attend the market, but see a plant you'd like to purchase on our Stories Highlights of Available Plants, we welcome inquires to our Instagram messages or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks kindly for your understanding, and hope to see you at one of the Local Farmers' Markets!
