ONGOING OPPORTUNITIES

uOttawa Learning Garden
https://www.facebook.com/uolearninggarden/
Includes plan for weekly Monday evening group gardening events
* The main project of the Learning Garden this year: building an Indigenous Garden featuring native plants and techniques and serving as a platform for education and gatherings related to the defenders of the land.
Contact: the Learning Garden is associated with OPIRG-GRIPO (see below)
* There are two raised-beds garden locations on uOttawa campus

OPIRG-GRIPO at uOttawa is looking for Board members
* A campus/community organization focused on social, economic, and environmental justice, they currently have five board members out of a possible nine. Significant challenges are coming as they lay off staff in preparation for the loss of funding (for them and at orgs across campus) due to the Ford goverment's "Student Choice Initiative". Supporting Indigenous work and issues has been and is a central feature of their efforts.
* Contact: gripocampus@gmail.com, 613-520-2800 x4359/x4500

Ottawa Public Library consultations on new Central Library:
"The architects and representatives from the City, OPL and LAC also visited the Algonquin communities of Pikwàkanagàn and Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg to meet with and learn from Elders and community members, and to share knowledge about the project. Additional meetings, design workshops and knowledge sharing events are planned with these Algonquin communities, and with local urban and national Indigenous organizations."
