What is the Community Garden project?
The Rideau Rockcliffe Community Resource Centre Community Garden will be located behind the Social Harvest Greenhouse. The plan is to create a relatively small, accessible garden with space for 12 tenants where vegetables and fruit will be grown. We are currently looking for volunteers to join our board, submitting grant proposals, and hoping to build the garden early this spring. The garden's main goal is to improve food security in Ward 13 by fostering a sense of community and increasing access and availability to fresh fruits and vegetables.
