The Just Food Seed and Soil Program provides you with the seed, soil, and information to grow vegetable plants in your garden, yard, or balcony. This program is run in partnership with Greely Sand & Gravel and the City of Ottawa. It is facilitated by amazing volunteers and community partners in your neighbourhood.

You can receive a minimum of 6 vegetable seed varieties. The seed is ready for organic growing, which means that they are free from any pesticides or other chemicals. You can also receive approximately 160 litres of organic top-soil – enough to fill three blue / black recycling bins. This is about $40 worth of soil. This soil is high quality, full of nutrients, and chemical free. It can be used for your vegetable seed or other plants.

Wabano programs are for First Nation, Inuit and Métis community members only. If a program is open to the general public, it will be specified. With open programs that have limited space, priority will be first given to Indigenous registrants.
