Our story

Opened in Kitsilano in 2017.

TurF is a studio, shop, kitchen + coffee bar. We bring together the essentials to live a life that’s enormous. Joy is infectious.

TurF is a daily practice.

Deanne & Delaney

Deanne and Delaney Schweitzer are sisters and co-founders of TurF. They came to see that when you follow passions fully led by purpose, your life just works—fully created, full of balance and joy.

TurF was born on the foundation of all the things they love: healthy food, thoughtful apparel, a conscious sweat, the best coffee and building community.

"TurF was created to be a space for all of us to grow and contribute. We take care of the future and the people in it."

The founders were raised with the importance of community throughout their lives. They were born in BC, Canada and are descendants of the First Nations People. They believe in family, love, giving and taking care of our communities.

Land Acknowledgement

Since 2017, TurF has been privileged to proudly build its community in sən̓aʔqʷ; the Indigenous name of the Kitsilano neighbourhood. We acknowledge these lands are on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

Sən̓aʔqʷ, prior to the arrival of European settlers, was a gathering space for commerce, social relationships, and cultural practices.  We acknowledge and pay respect to the people and traditions that have shaped the community and land that we are honoured to be situated on today.  We are determined to continue learning and bring light to the discriminatory and colonial practices that have had a lasting legacy.
