2022 Nouvelles demandes de jardin CGDF

Si vous êtes un groupe de Logement communautaire d’Ottawa, veuillez contacter le coordinateur au numéro ci-dessous.

Les candidatures au CGDF peuvent être soumises toute l’année. Ils seront évalués au fur et à mesure de leur réception.

Les demandes reçues au cours de l’année 2022 seront évaluées de manière continue, au lieu d’une seule date limite chaque hiver. S’il est probable que la plupart des jardins présentant une demande en 2022 recevront un financement en 2022, il est possible que certains ne puissent pas accéder à un financement avant 2023. Nous recherchons également des possibilités de parrainage pour 2022 jardins afin d’aider à financer autant de jardins que possible.

Les jardins potentiels auront des besoins différents en matière d’autorisation d’accès au terrain, selon le propriétaire du terrain que le jardin cherche à utiliser. L’approbation des jardins souhaitant construire sur des terrains appartenant à la ville prendra plus de temps. Pour ceux qui souhaitent construire sur des terrains appartenant à la Ville en 2022, nous vous recommandons vivement de faire parvenir votre proposition avant la fin du mois de mai 2022.

Les personnes intéressées par la mise en valeur des terrains urbains de la Commission de la capitale nationale, la CCN a réalisé un jardin pilote en 2017. Il existe également des jardins sur les terrains de la ceinture verte de la CCN. Veuillez contacter le coordinateur à l’adresse communitygardening@justfood.ca pour plus d’informations.

Project Details

Please include details on all of the following: bed construction, topsoil delivery, compost, mulch, pathways material, what will be done to ensure property owners’ assets are not damaged.
*Note: Site Plans is a separate question, below.
Please describe your water plan. Please include details on: where the water source is located, whether it is confirmed as being usable for the garden, who is paying for the water and whether a water meter is required (ex. When sharing water with a community building or church/temple etc.), how the water will get to the garden space, the length of hose you will need to fill the vessels, and what vessels are used to store water in the garden (ex. Rain barrels etc.)

Applications must include a visual site plan that outlines where the plots, compost bins, water source/vessels, shed any other notable features in the garden will be. Please include a drawing/diagram of your proposed site plan in the space below (you may also attach pictures/diagrams separately). Please indicate accessible plots on your site plan, for those with accessibility needs, and label the accessible pathway if applicable. It is very helpful to also include a contextualized site plan that shows where the site is in relation to the larger property. Lastly, for gardens on City Land, if you are building a shed, pergola, arbour, or anything of this nature, please submit the specifications/dimensions for these features. On this diagram please provide dimensions, footing, materials required, design, installation details, and anything else that may be relevant – the more details the better.
One of the CGN’s priorities is to ensure that all Community Gardens reduce barriers to participation for as many people as possible. Please identify what strategies, designs, and features will be included in your garden to contribute to a more barrier-free gardening experience (i.e. wheelchair accessible beds and pathways, signage in multiple languages, culturally inclusive plans for growing diverse foods, etc.) It is a good idea to do some research on the demographics of your area.
All Community Gardens are required to adopt organic growing methods for the benefit of the gardeners and of the Land and soil. This includes: using organic soil, non-chemical pest control strategies and fertilization methods and using untreated wood for building garden boxes. In addition, consider such practices as purchasing from local suppliers, composting, incorporating pollinator plants, companion plants, seed saving, water conservation, planting locally adapted varieties and native perennials, providing education to the community via workshops, training, a children/youth corner, etc.. Please describe your aspirations on this matter.
How will it be structured? What positions or committees will help to manage the operation of the Garden? How can other/future interested gardeners/volunteers access opportunities and positions, or be included in decision-making processes? Community Gardens are an important way for the public to come together to learn from one another. Describe in as much detail as possible your ideas on this matter.
The CGN encourages gardens to be as inclusive and diversified in their membership as possible. This means making gardening accessible to all people despite their financial status, skill level, language, gender, race, ethnicity, culture, age, physical ability, etc. Please describe your strategies to make the Garden Membership diverse, and to build a Garden Culture that is welcoming, expansive and inclusive.
For example: volunteer hours, shared/communal tasks, community guidelines for behaviour and conduct, etc.
For example: expected hours for set-up, for steering volunteers, accountability, expected responsibilities divided among the Coordinators (i.e. one Coordinator will be in charge of finances, another Coordinator will handle the email account and scheduling volunteers, etc.)
Please include details on as many of the following items as possible: how the site will be accessed by gardeners, where tools will be stored, parking specifications, how public access to the garden will be managed, how you will manage your garden’s compost, how gardeners will know what they need to do and when, and, if your garden is a communal garden, how the food will be shared/distributed/handled in an organized and equitable way.
Please include details on: on-going site maintenance, pathway maintenance, end-of-year garden closure, dealing with abandoned plots mid-season, and anything else you think is relevant to this matter.

Please include a detailed itemized list of items you will require for your Garden. Include dimensions and # of pieces for all lumber, and prices (including taxes) for all other items. Note: It is best to use a table or a spreadsheet for this purpose, so that the Committee can read your budget as clearly as possible.

25) Please list all other funding or in-kind resources you expect to receive.

The purpose of this is to show how your garden will fund its ongoing needs/maintenance/repair, as well as things such as events and community outreach. Think about things like repairing signage and beds, replacing tools and irrigation pieces, and the cost to host community events such as potlucks, trainings, etc. This is where you will indicate a membership fee (if applicable) and how these fees will help build a reserve fund over a period of time. As well, please indicate any other donations and fundraising you expect to receive/do over the year. If you are looking to have a communal garden without fees, you can indicate any confirmed/anticipated sources of ongoing funding/donations.


Start-up Farm Program

Just Food established the Start-Up Farm Program to support new farmers in the Ottawa region. By offering access to land, shared infrastructure/equipment, and training, the program aims to enable more people in this region to start their own successful farm business.
