Just Food’s mission is to work towards a vibrant, just and sustainable food system in the Ottawa region
This Ottawa-based non-profit has a diverse set of programs and initiatives ranging from the development of a demonstration farm to coordinating a community gardening network.
Administered by Just Food, The Community Gardening Network of Ottawa is an information and resource-sharing network. Central to their work is education, outreach, and skill development. This includes an annual canning and food preservation workshop series. Currently I am serving as a facilitator for these workshops and working alongside a small group of other volunteers and staff to develop a local canning guide.
