Fruitful Ottawa: growing great fruit in the city

A person walks along pathway with fruit overhanging.

Have you been eyeing your garden, wondering what to plant next? Are you wishing that there was more fresh food growing in your neighbourhood? If you have, you’ll want to come to the Alta Vista branch Saturday, April 30th, from 2:00 – 3:30 p.m.


Sarah Walker from the Heron Park Community Orchard will teach the basics of planting fruit trees, shrubs and berries in your backyard. She will also discuss how to use Food Forest design for your fruit growing projects. From 2:45 – 3:30 p.m. she will provide an orientation session for anyone who is interested in helping with the Heron Park Community Orchard.


Registration is recommended, and the program is open to all. We hope to see you then!
