Habitat for Humanity Greater Ottawa

Habitat for Humanity

Earlier this week, Councillor Bob Monette and Miranda Gray, President of the Convent Glen-Orleans Wood Community Association, met with the new owners of the property at the corner of Fortune and Jeanne d’Arc. We are very excited to tell you that Habitat for Humanity Greater Ottawa (Habitat GO) has purchased the land. They will be leading people from the community in building townhouses in a series of events over the next three years.

The future owners of these homes will be hard-working low-income families who could not otherwise dream of home ownership. They will contribute 500 volunteer hours before they move in and then will buy the house via a no-interest mortgage arranged with Habitat GO. You can learn more about how Habitat GO works or read the stories of some new home owners by heading over to their website at http://www.habitatgo.com/

Additionally, a representative from Habitat GO will be presenting at the next meeting of the community association board (7pm on Thursday, November 19 at 255 Centrum Blvd). They will tell us a bit about how they work with community partners to build homes and will give us an overview of their plans for this site. This is not a public consultation as this lot is already zoned for high density housing. It is a chance to ask questions or raise any concerns. We hope to see you there! 

If you are interested in helping out with this initiative, please email us at info@conventglenorleanswood.com and we will keep you informed.

Tree Planting in Mystery Park/Plantation d’arbres dans Parc des Mystère

ecology ottawa logoIt’s tree planting season again and the Convent Glen – Orleans Wood Community Association, in collaboration with Tree Ottawa, will be re-planting Mystery Park! 

WHEN: October 17th, 9am-12pm

WHERE: Mystery Park Orleans (Close to Carine Wilson High School) 

mystery park

Like so many of Ottawa’s greenspaces, Mystery Park has been hit hard by the Emerald Ash Borer. With over 25% of the trees in this park being Ash, the City of Ottawa had to clear-cut the whole area. This is an amazing opportunity for us to re-plant and protect the future of our greenspace one park at a time!

The City of Ottawa has found a sponsor for this planting, Patterson group, and we will have 800 potted trees to plant! Everyone is invited! Lets get our hands dirty for trees!

Please let us know if you are joining us – RSVP at: http://www.ecologyottawa.org/mysteryparkplanting
