The Ottawa Farm School (OFS) program at Just Food teaches kids how to grow their own food and support their communities. Educators at the Just Food Farm, including farmers at Cadence Ecological Farm and Leaf House City Farm, are teaming up to deliver online videos, newsbites, and email/phone support for the 2020 growing season.
The OFS has moved their educational experience online for the 2020 season. All of the training material is accessible online for free so that every kid can learn about growing food at home.
