    We need your support

    At a time when community matters more than ever, we're at risk of closing our doors. Due to COVID-19, our beloved Firehall has been largely closed since March. Now, without more funding, we face shutting down for good. Please, donate to the Campaign to Save Our Firehall, and help us continue providing programming, serving our community, and bringing friends and neighbours together for many years to come.

 SAVE OUR FIREHALL

We are now “ringing the bell” and calling on all residents to help Save Our Firehall! We need your help to keep our community centre open. Restrictions due to COVID-19 have had a huge impact on our Firehall’s ability to sustain itself. To thrive, the Firehall relies on revenues from the programs it delivers. The City owns the Firehall and maintains it but doesn’t cover operational costs. If we are to make up the shortfall in operational costs, we need to fundraise. How can you help? You can help by pledging your financial support on a monthly basis. No amount is too small or too big. Every donation counts. Monthly pledges add up over time and with many families pledging their support we can make sure that our community centre remains open in 2021.

Ottawa South Groceteria

We are very excited to see the transformation of a venerable business in the Sunnyside/Seneca area, from what seems to have been a “corner store” forever…or at least since we arrived in the neighbourhood in 1995! The transformation began, when the new owners started clearing out junk in the back of the store. This is where the brothers Fares and Tamer discovered an old butchers block. They realized they were continuing an Old Ottawa South business which needed love.

Green Dreamers: Welcome to our Fifth Season!

Green Dreamers: Welcome to our Fifth Season!

Yes, we’re back! So, if you see us in the neighbourhood wave, stop for a chat, share some of your gardening insights and suggestions. We are always delighted to see and hear from you. It’s why we garden in Old Ottawa South's public spaces; aside, that is, from the intrinsic rewards of gardening itself.

Spring 2018 begins our fifth season tending public beds along Bank Street and Sunnyside Avenue. And with the passing of winter we are preparing to rethink and “rejig” how we work as volunteer gardeners. So, if you have an opinion or some ideas about how we might do things differently, we’d like to hear from you.
