Operation Come Home

The Split Share - FarmWorks 2018


FarmWorks Split 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 FarmWorks Split Share is a new offer this year, acknowledging that 8-10 vegetables / week may be too many for smaller households. The Split Share allows you to benefit from 8-10 vegetables every other week, while donating the off-weeks to Operation Come Home's food programs for at-risk youth (charitable tax receipt provided).

FarmWorks Split share includes:

  • 8 weeks of local, certified organic vegetables, every other week from June - October
  • 8 -10 items / week
  • A donation of every other week's share to Operation Come Home's food programs for at-risk youth
  • charitable tax receipt in the amount of $250 for you
  • Seasonal recipes to stay creative in the kitchen
