MEDIA PHOTO OPPORTUNITY
On Saturday May 23rd, volunteers from Lowe’s (Nepean), members of Ottawa Community Housing and members of the Britannia Woods Community will volunteer their time and skills to build a community garden that will help nourish the residents of Britannia Woods. The event will also include a free community BBQ.
Each year, Lowe’s employees team up to provide hundreds of hours of support to local communities as part of the Lowe’s Canada Heroes program. The program encourages employees to work together and adopt a volunteer project with a local nonprofit organization or public school, to help make a meaningful difference in the communities in which we operate.
Ottawa Community Housing Tenants are very proud of their 23 community gardens. Tenants manage traditional gardens, balcony gardens, raised beds, and “giving gardens”.
