Farming in the Greenbelt: Beetbox Cooperative Farm
The Beetbox Farmers
We believe that everyone who eats should have the opportunity to check out a farm! This walk is a chance to visit a working small-scale organic diversified vegetable farm, surrounded by forest and marshes, right in the city! Beetbox Farm is one of over one hundred farms in Ottawa's Greenbelt. We will discuss the beautiful landscape in which the farm is situated, the history and wider context of farming in the NCC Greenbelt, and the exciting opportunities for young farmers on this agricultural property. Beetbox is excited to welcome visitors to the farm, to get to know the neighbours, and to learn and share stories about why farms matter to our community!
