Roots and Shoots has been growing delicious, nutrient-rich, certified organic veggies since 2010. Jess and Robin started out on rented land in Manotick Station, and we've grown from 60 Community Supported Agriculture (veggie box) members in our first year to 300 in 2015. That year we purchased the ol' Nesbitt Farm just north of Ste Cecile de Masham, minutes from P19 in Gatineau Park. We now serve veggie baskets to over 500 families through our Summer, Fall and Winter organic basket program.
We believe in fostering a sustainable future for our region, and we believe in creating long-term local employment to build local-food capacity in our area.
