Calling all foodies in the West Ottawa area! Beetbox Farm is a beautiful urban growing venture providing fresh, nutritious fruits and vegetables to its surrounding community. Farmers Jess, Scott, Angela, Janice, Camille, and Jeremy are a young group dedicated to creating a better future for the people and our planet. They have come together to grow quality, seasonal produce for their neighbors to enjoy. They form a worker cooperative in which each member has a say in how the farm runs; beyond a commitment to growing good food and being kind to the land, they’re dedicated to creating well-paying jobs for farmers. The produce grown on the farm includes everything from leafy greens, cucumbers, tomatoes, and eggplant to root veggies, melons, and winter and summer squash. The community can enjoy everything Beetbox Farm offers through a thriving CSA program (on sale at beetbox.ca as of January), an annual seedling sale in May, a line of prepared foods, a farm store (open June to November), and other events held throughout the growing season.
