Tanglewood Park Community Garden

 

The Tanglewood Park Community Garden was created in 2018.  The garden offers a great place to grow fresh organic veggies, exercise your mind and body and meet your neighbours in a 100% organic garden.  The garden boxes are available from May 15 – October 31.

For the 2020 season, due to Covid-19, gardening of the 18 boxes at 30 Woodfield was delayed.

We are happy to announce that our Community Garden has received approval by Just Food and the City of Ottawa Public Health guidelines to be open. 

The garden is closed to the general public, the community garden can only be accessed by registered garden members, staff and volunteers. Garden members need to follow Ottawa Public Health COVID-19 guidelines on physical distancing and sanitation.

We have implemented Raised/Wood Boxes (4 by 12 ft) for gardening.   Cost to rent a raised garden box is $26.00/season for THCA-members and $30.00/season for non-members.

Triple compost bin

The community garden spaces follow a standard Triple Compost Bin setup.

They are suitable for backyard or community garden spaces, depending on the space and requirements of your site. This large bin triplet is designed to be rodent resistant and simple to use. Additionally, the materials will be easily accessible and it will be safe to construct. This composter will take approximately eight hours to build and if the materials are sourced locally (using rough lumber), it can be constructed for approximately $150 to $170.
