New for 2023 CSA
Extended season with Low-carbon greenhouses
In 2022 we installed a a new hydro service to allow us to heat all of our greenhouses with 100% Quebec hydro. This was the single biggest source of carbon emissions on our farm, and the new electric heat reduced our carbon footprint by over 50 tonnes!
We have been able to give greens and kale throughout the winter share (February-March) We will be planting tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers earlier, so we will have these earlier in the summer share (June/July)
Finally, Design your own Basket!
We initiated this in the fall 2022 and winter 2023 baskets and it was excellent! We will still design a basic basket and you can choose to take what we put in there, but if you want to switch out things, you will now be able to do so online, before your pickup!! We will send an email closer to the beginning of the share detailing exactly how to do this. It's simple, we promise!!
Pickup will still be market style; however you will need to follow your own personal list, whether you stuck with our basket or designed your own. Coordinators will be onsite to help you out!
The best tasting veggies come from biodiverse farms!
We practice what we preach at Roots and Shoots - 60% of our entire farm is in cover crop every year, to renew and protect the soil, promote soil microbiology, and provide habitat for beneficial insects and fungi. In 2021 we planted 1300 fruit trees, shrubs and forest trees in strips between our veggie beds to provide habitat for birds and insects and provide wind shelter for our crops. Our living soils provide the best conditions for growing the most delicious and sweet-tasting crops, which will make your meal prep an absolute pleasure.
Home delivery available for
fall and winter shares to Gatineau and Ottawa.
Zero plastic packaging
Not only are our veggies low-carbon, but the CSA is the most sustainable way to get your food! Our market style pickups not only give you the most choice possible, but they mean there is no packaging waste. Bring your own bag to pick up!
We do pack greens in plastic, however you can choose the paper bag option if you prefer. You must transfer the greens to a sealed tupper ware or plastic bag once you get home in order to ensure your greens last!
