The Seeds and Soil Home Garden Project

Are you looking for a way to increase your food supply with a home garden? There is still time to plant greens, beans and other food for your home use.

Just Food and the City of Ottawa’s Human Needs Task Force are partnering to provide free seeds and soil to 3000 households living on lower incomes in Ottawa.

Home gardens are a great way to grow your own food, stay active, and support positive mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Distribution starting Tuesday, June 16. First come – first served! All information found here: https://justfood.ca/garden2020/
