Ottawa/Gatineau

A Place of Restoration, Inspiration, and Preparation

Over the last few years A Rocha events in Ottawa have tended to be of an educational nature that involved an outdoor activity (e.g., wildflower walk) in Gatineau Park following by a potluck supper and a speaker on a theme related to creation care. Three years ago we also started a community garden at the University of Ottawa where we grow vegetables and then donate them to an inner city Christian organization that works with those in need. This year we have become involved in Citizen Science and participated in two programs in Gatineau Park which is a large federal nature park adjacent to Ottawa in the province of Quebec.
