Mechanicsville Innovation Garden
The Mechanicsville Innovation Garden (MIG) is a welcoming community garden in the Mechanicsville neighbourhood of Ottawa.
Located at the Innovation Centre at Bayview Yards (next to Laroche Park), the garden is a shared community space where people from Mechanicsville can come to learn about gardening and plant, weed, and water. Unlike most community gardens that are plot-based, MIG is a collective plot where planting is done together and anyone can harvest from any part of the garden. The goal is to involve the community to bring fresh produce back to Mechanicsville, a neighbourhood considered to be a “food desert” because it isn't served by a major grocery store and it's hard to find healthy affordable food year round.
