Worker Bees in Urban Shades

Urban Shades Communal Community Garden
Blackburn Ave/Laurier Ave Intersection
K1N 7Z2

Urban Shades is a communal community garden in Ottawa. Anyone and everyone from the community is welcome to join us for weekly-held "Work Bees" where the community gets together to collectively work on the garden. Gardeners at Urban Shades come from a variety of different backgrounds. It is an inclusive and safe space in which to meet friends, build community and learn a few things about gardening and sustaining our neighbourhoods in the process.

Our activity will be held on our regular work bee timing from 2-5pm. Please come join our diverse community and garden with us.

You can learn more about us at our facebook page: or email at
