Growing Resistance

Growing Resistance is a regenerative care project for communities and the environment. Access to food, clean air, and water (along with shelter) is the right of all people. We all occupy this space together and share the responsibility of taking care of the land and each other. 

We commit to doing this by;

  1. Building partnerships with other food and plant programs in the City
  2. Collaborating with community members and neighbourhoods to convert their green spaces into food and plant gardens using up-cycled and repurposed materials

Growing Resistance is facilitated by Carling Miller (Kind Space) and Sinda Garziz (CCHC)!

Hi neighbours!

We’re excited to let you know the garden is back this season and even more significant than last year! Last week we started seeding and we’ve already had a tone of growth! 

We’re also excited to announce that the garden is officially in partnership with the LGBTQ+ Newcomer Program at Centretown Community Health Centre!

We’ll update on Instagram the days and times folks can help in the garden.

Hi neighbours!

The season is upon us and we have exciting news! Ottawa Community Housing and the residents at 395 Somerset have agreed to let Kind Space share the rooftop terrace to grow healing plants, herbs, flowers, and some food. 

Growing Resistance is looking for folks interested in gardening, have the time, but don’t have their own space to use.

Stay tuned on how you can participate!
