BeetBox Co-operative Farm is growing (pardon the pun)! And, we need people like you; people who peruse food related employment opportunities.
We are looking for an assistant market gardener to catapult our CSA program to the next level!
ABOUT BeetBox Co-operative Farm
We are a farmer-owned workers co-operative growing high quality vegetables, ecologically.
Last year, we established a new CSA for the lovely people of West Ottawa.
The co-op was established in 2017 by three young agrarians: Jeremy Colbeck, Lise-Anne
Léveillé, and David Mazur-Goulet. Together, we bring over a decade of growing experience to our community.
What makes us different?
- 110 acres right in the city
- Surrounded by forest and a short walk from the very swimmable Ottawa River.
- A farm that is financed by its members and the community at large
- Opportunities that lie beyond the six month contract as we grow year after year
- Possibility of living on the farm
