Operation Come Home

BOGO (Buy One, Give One) Share - FarmWorks 2018


The FarmWorks BOGO (Buy One, Give One) Share

FarmWorks is a certified organic farm in the East end of Ottawa. As a social enterprise of Operation Come Home, FarmWorks employs Ottawa's at-risk youth in paid farm positions, encouraging them to build meaningful skills through experiential learning and supporting them in a safe space to reach new goals.

The standard FarmWorks Share is a seasonal subscription to weekly vegetables from the farm, delivered to locations around Ottawa. The BOGO Share doubles the goodness, not only subscribing you to a weekly share but also donating the same every week to Operation Come Home's food programs for at-risk youth. Imagine slicing into a juicy tomato this summer knowing that youth are also doing the same!

FarmWorks BOGO share includes:

  • 16 weeks of local, certified organic produce, every other week from June - October
  • 8 -10 items / week for you
  • Additional share donated to Operation Come Home's food programs for at-risk youth
  • charitable tax receipt in the amount of $500 for you
