Just Food

Just Food's mission is to work towards vibrant, just and sustainable food and farming systems in the Ottawa region. As part of our mission we work in parks in a variety of different ways.

Through our Community Gardening Network program we work with over 90 community gardens all across Ottawa. Many of these gardens are in parks & we want to see more community food grown in parks.

Additionally we have a 150 acre community farm, with an indoor community space, 10 farm businesses on site, a community garden, a community food forest, demonstration plots, and many nature trails. This park space is where we host events, and encourage the community to come participate in many activities & learn about their local food system.
