Growing our Community
Start date: 27 April, 2017
End date: 29 September, 2017
Ottawa will get a little bit greener in 2017, when AKFC and Just Food bring Canadians together in 2017 to plant and maintain a new community garden. This project will enhance the quality of life for residents and visitors alike for decades to come, connecting local and global issues of food security and environmental sustainability, and providing a platform for Canadians to engage with important issues both in Canada and abroad.
Nature of the Project Reach
residents and visitors to Canada’s capital
Growing our Community will empower the community to create a space that promotes inclusion, idea-sharing, community-building, and environmental stewardship for residents and visitors to Canada’s capital. This project is part of Ottawa 2017’s community legacy project to install 20 new community gardens across the city for Canada’s 150 anniversary celebrations.
