Cleaning the Capital is a city-wide cleanup campaign that occurs in the spring and fall every year. Residents come together as a community and combine efforts to make our city clean and green. Litter pickup or graffiti removal projects register with the City of Ottawa and participating teams, upon request, receive a cleanup starter kit to assist them with their projects.
This summer the Green Dreamers toured the May Court Hospice Gardens. The gardens are not open to the public; they have been created as a private refuge for Hospice clients, their families, guests, staff, and volunteers. And so, we felt especially privileged to be welcomed as guests by volunteer gardeners & staff to this green oasis in the heart of Old Ottawa South.
Seniors from Capital Ward are invited to explore housing options at this free event with Councillor David Chernushenko and Bonnie Schroeder, Council on Aging of Ottawa Director of Age-Friendly Ottawa.
