A bit about the event:
Interested in local, community based, organic small-scale farming? Want to get a taste of vegetable and herb farming right here in Ottawa's greenbelt? Come and join a "Planting Party" with Herbivor Farm on Saturday, June 20th from 9am - 5pm!
As the warm weather comes to the Ottawa valley and the risk of killing frost fades, its time to plant heat loving crops. After a few weeks of hardening off, our tomato, eggplant and peppers are ready to get into the soil. On June 21st, come join our planting party and help the farm transplant over 40 varieties of these crops. There will be free organic transplants available for participating volunteers to take home from our wide range of cultivars. Spice up your balcony, back deck or garden with some of our interesting heirloom and heritage varieties! Refreshments and farm fresh salad will be provided.
Herbivor farm is a 3rd year start-up farm participating in Just Food's Start-Up Farm Program (http://justfood.ca/start-up-farm-program/). Growing on half an acre of land this season and located just a 15 minute bus ride from downtown Ottawa, the farm will be feeding over 30 families and individuals this year through its CSA (Community Shared Agriculture) membership and through selling at the Just Food Market (Sundays 10am-3pm starting July 12th - 2389 Pepin Court, Ottawa).
Time: 9am - 5pm (come for the day or come for an hour!)
