Biodiversity is essential in operating a successful organic vegetable farm and that is why at Roots and Shoots Farm, they grow flowers too. Not only are their flowers really pretty, they encourage beneficial insects and pollinators too!
“Certified Organic protects not only the health of the consumer, but also the health of the farmer, the ecosystems that produce the food, the waterways on the farm, and the biodiversity of the farm. It is for this reason that Roots and Shoots Farm supports and adheres to Certified Organic standards.” — Roots and Shoots Farm
Besides the CSA veggie share I mentioned yesterday, Roots and Shoots vegetables, flowers and other local products are available at their farm store as well. You can also pickup their veg in grocery stores such as Herb & Spice and Whole Foods. Not too sure what’s happening with Farmer’s Markets this year, but in non-COVID years you can visit them at the Lansdowne Ottawa Farmers’ Market too.
Take care and have a wonderful weekend!
