About our Gardens

St. Colomba

Manor Park Community Garden at St. Columba:

This community vegetable garden is located behind St. Columba Anglican Church. It has raised bed vegetable garden plots that individuals and families rent for the season, as well as donation plots that volunteer gardeners use to grow food for the local food bank at Rideau Rockcliffe Community Resource Center. There are currently 12 garden plots and they are rented out starting in (February).  Please contact the garden early in the season if you would like to rent a plot.  

This site also features a pollinator garden that was created by members of St. Columba Church in collaboration with Faith and the Common Good. 


Seeds of Change

Seeds of Change Community Garden:

This community vegetable garden is located behind 500 St. Laurent Blvd Ottawa Community Housing building and contains raised bed vegetable garden plots where residents (of 500 St. Laurent Blvd?) can grow food together. It also features a children’s garden and a pollinator garden. 


Native Plant Demonstration

Manor Park Native Plant Demonstration Garden

This garden aims to create a small habitat for native wildflowers, grasses, insects, and birds to thrive. Our goals are to provide ecosystem functions to enhance and protect Manor Park’s natural systems. The garden also serves as an engaging educational tool for residents to enable them to create native habitats with similar ecosystem benefits on their own properties using green gardening practices. 



Manor Park Community Council (MPCC) Vegetable Gardens

These raised beds located next to the MPCC fieldhouse and close to Manor Park Public School are used for vegetable gardening by children who attend MPCC programs including their after-school programming, summer camps, and the licensed daycare.
