Community Gardening Network of Ottawa is an information and resource-sharing network that supports the sustainable development of community gardens within the City. Just Food delivers an annual gardening workshop series that parallels the growing season.
A Community Garden Development Fund was established in 2009, as a collaboration between Just Food, the City of Ottawa and members of the Community Gardening Network, each providing representation to the annual allocations committee. The annual $76,000 fund is used to start new community gardens, and to expand and enhance existing gardens, within the City of Ottawa. In August 2015 Ottawa City Council passed a motion to increase the Community Garden Development Fund by $15,000 annually.
