Support Local

Ottawa is growing. We’ve seen that over the last five years as Support Local has taken off with creative, amazing collaborations popping up between businesses, artists, musicians and more. This year, Support Local is encouraging collaborations around growing our community: eating, harvesting, and celebrating local food. We’ve got a great lineup of events that showcase local food initiatives and the abundance of local farms, encouraging all of us to get out and collaborate as a community.

Let’s eat together and grow this city together. Let’s plant seeds and feed our communities. Let’s be neighbours and support local.

This is Heart City.
