Grow Local!

VOLUNTEER IN OTTAWA

Positions: Volunteers
Organization: Cadence Ecological Farm
Location: Blackburn Hamlet, Ottawa, Ontario

Cadence Ecological Farm is looking for dedicated volunteers. We are a certified organic market garden (2 acres) located in Blackburn Hamlet at Just Food. We are thrilled to be growing our third season of colourful produce! Whew!

Through volunteering with us you will learn:

  • Weed and land management practices

  • How to support soil health and the challenges related to that

  • The benefits of incorporating perennial crops into an annual food system

  • Fertility management

  • Incorporating chickens into mixed-vegetable production

  • Small-scale organic business practices (difference between CSA, market, and wholesale business models)

Our goal is to contribute to building sustainable communities and to enhance local biodiversity through creating a food system that is regenerative. We produce over 50 varieties of certified organic vegetables including salad mix, root vegetables, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, zucchini, melons and squash, and are integrating chickens to our land’s ecology this year.

Please call Bee at 705-477-5876 or email cadence.ecological.farm@gmail.com for more information.
