Ward 15: Looking 4ward – October 18

Via D. Huron, see also http://kitchissippiward.ca/content/hampton-iona-looks-4ward-future and https://hamptoniona.wordpress.com/2017/10/12/hampton-iona-looks-4ward-to-the-future/

Message from the Hampton Iona Community Group:

Think about the qualities that drew you to live in Hampton Iona. What made this part of Ottawa a place in which you wanted to live, raise a family and retire? How do you feel about the way your neighbourhood is developing now? What concerns you? What excites you? How do we retain the qualities that make this a special part of the city in which to live, while dealing with issues such as intensification and opportunities such as the LRT?

Come and join us on October 18th for a “big picture” conversation concerning the future of our corner of Kitchissippi Ward. With significant new development, infill and changing transportation systems, Hampton Iona and the rest of Kitchissippi Ward will look significantly different in 10 or 20 years. How can we have a voice in what our future will look like? What role can citizens play in designing our neighbourhoods and city; and coping with change? How can we make sure that our social and physical infrastructures keep pace with our population growth?

Celebrate Canadian Gardening with New Wave Horticulture – May 9

Subject: re: Celebrate Canadian Gardening event tomorrow, Tuesday May 9th at 7PM, Jean Pigott Place Ottawa!
Date: Mon, 8 May 2017 17:23:18 -0400
From: info@compost.org

Hello,
We’re hoping you and the members of your association will be interested in an event planned for tomorrow at Jean Pigott Place in Ottawa, at 7PM!

Tickets are $20 and are available at: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/celebrate-gardening-in-canada-with-albert-mondor-tickets-33082268957
All proceeds are being directed to the Ottawa Food Bank and Debra Dynes Family House.

The speaker is celebrity garden expert Albert Mondor, and his topic, New Wave Horticulture, is described below.
New Wave Horticulture is an original, surprising and sometimes downright mystifying way to grow edible and ornamental plants where normally they perhaps would not grow. It’s not necessarily avant-garde technology, but rather a vision of an utilitarian urban horticulture, focused on recovery, recycling as well as addressing food and environmental challenges of tomorrow. Green walls, urban agriculture, foodscaping, composting, tiny plants and gardens, reclaimed and recycled landscaping materials and phytotechnology are a few topics Albert Mondor will discuss.

We hope to see you there!
