Faites un potager, cultivez votre nourriture !

15/05/2020

En ces temps de changement, les denrées alimentaires représentent un enjeu d’importance. Cultiver sa propre nourriture est une façon d’y répondre. Le potager est une source d’approvisionnement économique et écologique qui gagne en popularité. Jardiner est facile, ne requiert qu’un peu de votre temps et vous nourrit d’aliments frais jusqu’en automne. Quoi de mieux que de tendre la main pour cueillir quelques tiges d’herbes fraiches ou une tomate bien mûre pour agrémenter son repas ! À court d’espace? Quelques pots de légumes et d’herbes au balcon ou en bordure de votre fenêtre vous apporteront tout autant de satisfaction !

 

La bibliothèque publique d'Ottawa vous aide à démarrer votre potager en offrant en ligne une série d'ateliers de jardinage pour tous. Ces formations sont offertes à des dates variées, les mecredis (en anglais) et les jeudis (en français) des mois de mai et de juin. Tous ces programmes sont gratuits et offerts sur la plate-forme Zoom. Vous recevrez le lien à Zoom lors de votre inscription en ligne. L'accès à Zoom pour ces ateliers est également disponible par téléphone.

    Part 2 - Urban Forestry
    In the battle to save our cities, urban forestry stands guard on the front lines. Tree-lined streets not only beautify, but also help to moderate city temperatures and fight air pollution—in addition to raising property values. Trees hold water and prevent run-off and erosion. Tree planting and maintenance foster community spirit and strengthen neighborhoods.
