OSCA Community Builder Award - Call for Nominations

Now more than ever do we get to witness the strength and resilience of our community. Residents are stepping up in all kinds of ways to make sure we get through this challenging time together as a community. But this is nothing new of course; our community is full of everyday heroes! With our AGM coming up, OSCA wants to honour some of these volunteers and is seeking nominations from the community for the first-ever Community Builder Award!

Green Dreamers Give Thanks

Green Dreamers Give Thanks

October is one of those “bittersweet” months when the colourful and dramatic changes of Fall are at their most compelling and most nostalgic. The almost wistful affection that clings to this season begs for some “sweet” reminiscing and as Green Dreamers we tend to “recall” the season’s “happenings” in our local public lots.


Bike Rally & Rodeo: Free passes for the first 12 volunteers!

We're quickly approaching OSCA's Bike Rally & Rodeo! And we are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to join us!

Green Dreamers News and Our First Plant Drive

Green Dreamers News and Our First Plant Drive

Yes, it’s that time of year when the Green Dreamers share our latest news and invite you to our first ever plant drive to be held on Saturday, June 8, 2019 between noon and 3:00 p.m!

The Green Dreamers are very pleased to have recently received a donation from the Friends of the Ottawa Public Library Association. This money will be put to good use at the Sunnyside Branch library garden. It is the largest site of the approximately twelve public and private sites along Bank Street that our volunteers tend to every spring, summer, and fall. This also includes the Firehall site and the rain gardens on Sunnyside Avenue. Without the hard work of these green thumbs you would still be driving past untended and weedy garden plots between the two bridges. Luckily for our community, four years ago David Chernushenko hatched the idea for a volunteer gardening group and the Ottawa South Community Association took it under its wing.
