Timeline for Completion: Sat. Feb 10, 2018
Our Seedy Saturday will provide the opportunity for people to come together to exchange information and to buy, sell or trade interesting and unusual heritage varieties of vegetable, fruit, herb, flower, wild and native Ontario seeds.
We will have a seed exchange for seeds and extra plants, cuttings, books, magazines, pots, trellising, tools and/or gardening supplies. In the exchange, for each item donated another can be taken home. Larger items equate to a few extra goodies per item. If you forget to bring exchange items and still want to partake, a small donation (ie. $1 ea.) would be appreciated.
Many gardening and environmental organizations will be invited to set up information tables. We will have guest speakers available throughout the day to discuss a range of topics of interest for beginners through to advanced gardeners. These will add to the enthusiastic anticipation of this year’s gardening season!

Organization: Ottawa Stewardship Council and Friends of the Carp River
Timeline for Completion: Fall 2017
In fall 2017 a student team from the Group Research in Environmental Science Project at Carleton University undertook a study that will form the basis for monitoring programs and future research projects.
The Carp River Restoration Project commenced in 2016 and incorporates approximately 6000 metres of stream restoration, habitat improvements (ponds and wet meadows), and recreational pathways in a large, rapidly urbanizing area running parallel to Terry Fox Drive in Kanata.
The student’s project assembled available information about the Carp River before and after the restoration to establish a baseline description of the restored section. The baseline information and the restoration’s objectives will serve as the foundation on which to base an educational and interpretive program, begin monitoring programs, and conduct research projects related to the efficacy of the restoration.
We are partnered with the Friends of the Carp River for this project. Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority provided subject matter expertise.
