Join us in starting a new Community Garden

We’re excited to announce that we’re looking to start a NEW community garden in Hunt Club! If you’re interested in getting involved, we would love to hear from you. Please fill out the form with your contact information.

To help you get started, we encourage you to register for the FREE ‘How to Start a Community Garden‘ online workshop on Tuesday, April 18th from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

This workshop will cover the steps involved in starting a community garden in Ottawa, including how to search for land, what is essential when starting, the supports available, tips for organizing, and accessing public land through the City or NCC. Attendance at this workshop is a requirement in order to apply for funding through the Community Garden Development Fund (CGDF). To learn more about the process and register, email

Whether you have skills in building garden beds or just love to dig in the dirt, we need your help to make this community garden a success.

Let’s come together and create a beautiful space to grow fresh produce and build community. Send us your expression of interest today and join us on this exciting journey!

    Maudlin Matilda McEwan Community Garden

    This community garden was ‘built’ by a group of passionate HCCA volunteers over the months of June and July 2020, with a late planting date on July 20 of numerous seeds and already started plants.  We will be looking to harvest cherry tomatoes, Dester and other ‘regular’ tomatoes, radishes, beets, green and yellow beans, carrots, asian spinach, arugula, basil and even cucumbers later on in the fall.  The ‘Maudlin Matilda McEwan Community Garden’ is named in honour of Bishop Williams’ wife’s late mother, who passed away five years ago.  It is located at the back of the Emmanuel Apostolic Church, across from the Fire Station. We are hoping that this garden will be the first of many more in our community, to help address the issue of Food Security and sustainable food sources.
