The end of the season is fast approaching. The portable toilet left on Oct. 10 and the water is being turned off around Oct. 15.  

There will be another food collection on Saturday Oct. 20/ Sunday Oct 21 for the food bank located at the Debra Dynes family house.  Thanks to everyone who has given their extra produce so far.  

The garden is looking for helpers.  Do you want to help maintain fruiting bushes?  Would you like to be involved in performing the Registrar or Vice Chair duties on the Board of Directors? Would you like to do some whippersnipping over the season? If you are curious and want to know more, please let us know by contacting!

Do you have any NAGA tools from the tool shed that have accidentally made their way to your home?  Please bring them back so that everyone can access them as the season wraps up.

On the topic of cleaning up, all gardeners of annual plots must remove all string, sticks fence etc. by Oct. 31.  You may store your sticks etc. in the winter storage area or take them home.  Plant materials can be left on your plot, dug in, or brought home for composting.

About Us

The Nepean Community Gardens were created in 1991 and they are the the third largest community gardening site in Ottawa. We have over 200 plots and almost 150 gardeners. The plots are available from May 15 - October 31. Interested gardeners are encouraged to contact NAGA to register as the waiting list is an average of more than two (2) years for annuals, and more than three (3) years for perennials. 

We have two types of plots available.  Full annual plots are 20 ft by 30 ft, and are rototilled each spring.  Perennial plots are 20 by 15 ft and are entirely maintained by the gardener renting them. Recently we have implemented Raised/Wood Boxes (4 by 12 ft) for gardening.
