By removing challenges such as harvesting and planting food-bearing trees, Hidden Harvest Ottawa aims to increase our food security, address climate change and evolve our culture to be a food-tree friendly city.
Furthermore, this new initiative is striving to foster the largest urban orchard in Eastern Canada within five years.
Their motto: Pick, Plant, Share, Repeat!
Currently I am serving as a lead harvester, coordinating regular harvest events in the Hintonburg and Westboro communities.
