    Looking to start growing more food for your household on a larger plot of land?
    Wanting to start a farm business and need land and/or support?

    Find out about opportunities for both at these information sessions:

    Wednesday Sept 12 - 7-8pm or
    Saturday Sept 15 - 10-11am

    Where:  Just Food Farm, 2391 Pepin Crt.  

    Register at info@justfood.ca  - Please indicate which session you wish to come to.

Please ensure there are no rocks, piles of weeds, sticks, wires etc. on your headlands.  Ken who operates the ride on mower has been trying to mow the  headlands surrounding the plots so that you don't have to cut them yourself.  If you like not having to cut the grass in your headlands he needs you to keep your headlands clear of debris.

Are you interested in renting a NAGA garden?

We're currently full. To get on our waiting list, please e-mail the board at nagagardens@gmail.com with your full name, full address, and telephone number. Plots are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. We currently have a lengthy waiting list (2-3 years) so if you refuse two offers, your name will be removed from the list to give someone else a chance. We look forward to gardening with you in the future!

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.
