Come Garden With Us
The planning for our urban edible and wildlife garden is coming along nicely! We are building key relationships with local non-profit organizations like Just Food and their Community Gardening Network, while also working with the city of Ottawa to create something that both Lindenlea and Ottawa can be proud of. Our gardens and programs will: provide good, tasty, nutritious organic food for volunteers; facilitate hands-on, play-oriented learning experiences for children and adults; and, teach ecologically responsible leadership skills to help future generations solve the challenges of tomorrow while living a happy and meaningful life today. We will learn through observation, asking questions, problem solving, storytelling, games, mindfulness, music, drama, leadership, cooperation, and connection to nature, community, and one's self.
Our group of excited and passionate garden members is growing every month, as is our list of community donations. We’d like to give a big THANK YOU to everyone who has shown their support so far to make this a true community effort! Some items we are still looking for include: Trowels, shovels, hoses, pitch forks, watering cans, organic seeds, soil/compost, trellises, benches and/or picnic tables, etc…
If you have any spare gardening tools or supplies laying around that you’d like to give, let us know. If you don’t know what to give but would like to support, we will also gladly accept community donations for upcoming gardening projects and supplies. You don’t need to know anything about gardening to join us. This is a true community-led initiative, drawing upon everyone’s skills so we can learn together, share together, laugh together, and eat together.
Let's re-think what it means to live in the “Garden City” of Lindenlea!
See you outside,
