Ottawa’s Urban Farming leverages appetite for locally grown food


Ottawa's Urban Farming leverages appetite for locally grown food

(Theme 5 – Food, Theme 8 – Health)

Organization: BeetBox – VegBox CSA (community-supported agriculture) program

Timeline for Completion: Started 2017 Ongoing Seasonal

Objective:

The Original Brain Food – Our VegBox CSA program brings super local, organically-grown vegetables to West Ottawa.

BeetBox’s growing season runs from March, when the planting of beets, lettuce, cabbage, kale, carrots and green onions begins in the greenhouse. In May, the farming shifts to the field where sugar snap peas, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, cucumbers, zucchini, potatoes, green beans, winter squash, butternut squash, basil, cilantro and dill are grown. (The butternut squash is grown as part of a plant-breeding program to develop a squash specific to the Ottawa region.)
