Launching the Goldenrod Community Garden

Call for volunteers for a Community Garden approved for NCC land, west of the Parkdale off-ramp.


Dear Community Garden supporters,

The Goldenrod Community Garden has recently received approval to build a garden on a parcel of NCC land between Goldenrod Drive in the Tunney’s Pasture Complex and the SJAM Parkway. The garden location is just west of the Parkdale off-ramp of the SJAM Parkway.

We received approval and funding from the Ottawa Community Garden Network (a City of Ottawa agent) to purchase materials to build the garden infrastructure including: fencing, a storage shed and raised beds. We anticipate that we will start building as soon as the snow melts in the spring of 2021, approximately mid-April.

We are looking for members of the Hintonburg, Mechanicsville, Champlain Park and Westboro communities who are interested in participating in building the Goldenrod Community Garden in a number of roles. Please read the roles below and send an email with your name, availability and role to: goldenrodgarden@gmail.com
