FALL 2014 UPDATE: The harvesting of City-owned trees continues through Hidden Harvest Ottawa. Find our more on their website here: http://ottawa.hiddenharvest.ca
The Ottawa Trees to Tables Project (2012 to 2013) aims to connect the fruits of nature to those in need. The project will harness the city’s green infrastructure, which is underused or ignored, in order to help fight community hunger in Ottawa. The City of Ottawa has more than 4,000 food-bearing trees throughout the municipality. These trees produce fresh food that the Ottawa Trees to Tables Project, with volunteer assistance citywide, will collect and make available to those whom will benefit.
