Caring for ultra-local food A neighbourhood growing greener Story and photos by Kristy Strauss

Bright red tomatoes, multi-coloured beans and leafy greens are just some of the veggies children are learning to grow and harvest - thanks to community gardens set up at Kitchissippi elementary schools. “I think kids just love it,” says Joanne Kim, a Civic Hospital resi-

dent and parent of three daughters at Devonshire Public School. “They can literally see the fruits of their labour. It’s the one time kids can get dirty and it’s OK.” Devonshire offers a community garden in the schoolyard, where teachers, students and parents take care of the vegetables and harvest them when they’re ready.

“The garden also gives students a chance to learn about composting,” says Kim. Parents take weekly turns over the summer, watering the garden if it hasn’t rained and taking care of the weeding. Kim says the community garden has been at Devonshire for the past Continued on page 3

Making gardens grow

Sara Tedford and her green team at Elmdale Public School’s thriving garden.

Continued from page 1 three years, and was spearheaded by teacher Stephen Skoutajan. Her family has actively taken care of the garden since its early beginnings – watering and harvesting the plants in the first week of the project’s first year. Throughout the years, she says the garden has grown bigger and has expanded to growing tomatoes, herbs, Swiss chard and lettuce. Caring for it has also grown in popularity among families. “Parents have really gotten involved,” Kim says, adding that the weekly volunteer schedule to take care of the garden over the summer is booked solid. “Families are doubling up and sharing [weekly] turns. It shows how much people are into it.” She adds that community gardens in general are becoming more popular – especially in urban areas where green space might be more limited. “I’m impressed by the size and number of community gardens springing up,” she says. “It’s gaining momentum, and with the city’s mandate of creating high-density living, I think community gardens would benefit us here in Ottawa’s centre. Families will benefit.” Kim’s daughters have also enjoyed looking after the community garden at their school. Her daughter Zoe McGhan, who’s going into Grade 5 this fall, says she learned that she really enjoys gardening. “I like learning how the plants grow and the cycle of all the plants,” she says. Wellington Village resident Sara Tedford, who’s also an avid gardener, is helping take care of the community garden at Elmdale Public School this summer. Along with other parents, she’s been helping water and harvest the vegetables and herbs over the summer. “A lot of kids don’t have gardens at home, so this gives them the opportunity to grow and eat their own vegetables,” Tedford says. “They’re getting their hands dirty, learning what compost is, and the components of the whole gardening experience.”

Elmdale created their community garden three years ago with help from the Canadian Organic Growers’ Growing Up Organic project – a program that helps schools establish organic vegetable gardens, and delivers garden-based curriculum-connected workshops throughout the year. In the winter time, Tedford says some classes are offered workshops about gardening, particularly in Grades 1 to 3 where plants are part of the curriculum. “We plant seedlings in the classroom, and we plant those seedlings out here at the end of April,” Tedford explains. The school’s Eco Club – which is mostly children from Grades 4 to 6 – also come out to the garden and plant along with other classes when spring arrives. “Last year, the Eco Club harvested vegetables and made a root soup,” she says, adding that the garden has plenty of kale, lettuce, arugula and beans. “I think little community gardens are a great contribution to the surrounding neighbourhood,” Tedford says. “And it’s not just students who get experience. We’re bringing out parents. It’s a popular initiative here.”

Pockets of green The Veggie Underground Kitchissippi residents have many options when it comes to very local produce. The Veggie Underground, one of a number of Community Supported Agriculture programs with drop-off locations in Kitchissippi, is a homegrown Ottawa business based out of Vars where Alex Bourne and Amanda Wilson cultivate organic vegetables, herbs and melons. Every Wednesday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., they have a pick-up location on Sherbooke Avenue that’s available to members who are often seen walking or biking home with their weekly share of fresh local vegetables.

Alex Bourne shows off fresh fennel at the organization’s Sherbrooke Avenue drop-off.

“We carry seasonal mixed veggies,” Bourne says, adding that the vegetables come in many different varieties. To become a member of this CSA, visit: theveggieunderground.com

To celebrate International Breastfeeding Awareness Week (August 1-7), Susie Pearson, mother of four, shares her parenting wit and wisdom. Photos by Justin Van Leeuwen

Solid support for parents Trust your instincts, talk to your tribe

By Kathleen Wilker

In honour of International Breastfeeding Awareness Week, August 1-7, we caught up with Susie Pearson. This mother of four is one of Hintonburg’s favourite exStittsville residents and the owner of the Extraordinary Baby Shoppe – a store that specializes in cloth diapers, breastfeeding accessories and baby carriers. Over the years, Pearson has employed many mothers whose babies and chil710

dren are welcome to come to work alongside them and breastfeed when the need arises, if that’s what they do. It’s been a year since Pearson and her family relocated to Kitchissippi, although before she moved she was “constantly looking on MLS” for a home that would suit all six of them. Although their yard is smaller, being able to walk everywhere – including to work - is a huge benefit of the neighbourhood for Pearson.

3. Susie is a die-hard New Kids on the Block fan. “Come on, don’t judge, they’re this generations’ Beatles,” she says. Although she’d love to follow them around to their concerts, Susie’s business and her four kids don’t allow that kind of luxury, but when NKOTB come to Ottawa, she’s there. Asking Susie what her favourite NKOTB song is, she says, like asking her to choose one child as her favourite – impossible, they are all incredible.

1. Susie started her cloth diaper business at the Stittsville Flea Market 11 years ago “Working one day a week at the Flea Market gave me a chance to see if people were interested in cloth diapers,” says Susie. As her business grew, so did her family. Susie spent several years at a small store on Rosemount Avenue when the Midwifery Group had a business upstairs. When the midwives moved to their current Carling Avenue location, Susie moved her store across the street to Wellington. 2. The most important advice Susie could give new parents is: “You don’t need as much stuff as you think,” she says, adding “Don’t buy books. They interfere with your natural instincts. Talking to other parents is the best thing to do.” On the subject of breastfeeding, Susie says new parents should know “it’s not unusual to have problems at the beginning but knowing what your resources are is really helpful.”

Proofreader Judith van Berkom

Although her family and her work keep her busy, Susie’s always got time to chat.

4. Susie’s parents owned a small business. “It was a hardware store that sold a lot of different products, kind of like Home Hardware,” she says, remembering a time when the family lived in an apartment above the store. Susie’s dad was a locksmith who cut keys in the store, in West Kirby, England. If Susie (who has, it should be noted, travelled to Hawaii), could take her family anywhere, she’d bring them to her family home so they could see where she grew up. 5. Growing up, Susie thought she might be a writer. Owning her own small business was never part of her plan. In fact, Susie is a writer, blogging on her store’s website. Her writing is witty, engaging, wise and humble. Just like her. “I don’t write as much now that the kids are older, because I don’t want to embarrass them,” she says.

Tara Tosh Kennedy works on one of her paintings at her cottage in Quebec. Photo by Rosalind Tosh

Directions to the cottage Westboro artist’s first gallery show

By Anita Grace

There are many ways to celebrate cottage life in the summer. But Westboro artist Tara Tosh Kennedy may have found one of the best – having her first art showing in Cube Gallery’s Cottage exhibit. Don Monet, Cube Gallery curator, describes the exhibit as an interpretation and reflection of the cottage experience – be that chalet or shack; campsite or condo; lean-to or trailer. The group exhibit features nine Ottawa valley artists and includes paintings, dioramas and photographs. For Kennedy, this will be the first time her paintings are hung in a gallery. “It’s amazing,” she said. “I’m still pinching myself.” Noting that she didn’t even take art classes in high school, Kennedy, 41, is a self-taught artist who began experimenting with acrylics in her 20s. She grew up in Westboro and describes herself as a full-time mom and quarter-time artist. She never imagined that one day she would be showing her art in a gallery. But as she continued to explore and develop her painting, Kennedy found that her work resonated with other people. She has attracted fans through her Facebook page ‘taratoshkennedyartstudio’ and about ten years ago she began showing her art in restaurants and sold her first painting. In June, she was painting near Remic Rapids when rock sculpture artist John

Ceprano saw her at work and admired what she was doing. He recommended she show her work to Don Monet at the Cube Gallery. When Monet saw her painting, he invited her to submit her work for the upcoming Cottage exhibit. Fittingly, Kennedy has been preparing for the show at her family cottage near Bouchette, Quebec. Describing her art as “whimsical,” Kennedy enjoys experimenting with different subjects but always tries to make the work personal and expressive. “I want to communicate joy, love and peace,” she says. Subjects include nature scenes, flowers, waggish dog portraits and spiritual images like Buddhas. “For me, [art] should be about showing what is greatest about humanity and the human experience,” she says. Some Westboro residents have likely already seen Kennedy’s art. In 2010 and 2011, she painted the wading pool surfaces at McKellar and Iona Parks with colourful patterns and playful aquatic creatures. She also leads the arts committee at Hilson Public School where her two sons, Finn, 7, and Liam, 4, are students. Currently, Tosh is working on implementing a large-scale photography project called Inside Out for the coming school year. The Cottage exhibition will be showing at the Cube Gallery on 1285 Wellington Street West from August 13 – September 15.

Music, theatre and art came together at the inaugural Pangaea Art Festival, held at Happy Goat Coffee on August 10 and 11. If the name of this new festival sounds familiar, it’s because ‘Pangaea’ is the name for the earth’s original super continent, when all the land now divided into continents was still stuck together. That is the idea festival organizers, Jaquie Du Toit and Jonah Allingham of Hintonburg, had in mind when putting together the lineup: all forms of artistic expression stuck together in one celebration. “I felt that in Ottawa there is always a focus on either a theatre festival or a music festival, but nothing that really collaborates all forms of art,” said Du Toit. Du Toit is a barista at Happy Goat. She is also a dancer, performance artist and theatre producer with her own theatre company, Eighth Generation. She began her career in South Africa as a

dancer, joined a circus and eventually landed in Canada three years ago. Allingham is a local actor and theatre producer. His goal for the festival was to, “create a community-based theatre festival bringing together a bunch of different art forms and bringing it out into the street.” With performances spilling out into the lot in front of the coffee shop, it was an inviting, open party on a quiet and often overlooked end of Laurel Street. “We just want to make everybody feel like they belong,” said Du Toit. The festival included performances from three local theatre companies, live painting from artist Patrick S. Green and musical performances from the Lionyls, DJ PrufRock and an international band made up of members from South and Central America. This isn’t the first new festival Du Toit has helped bring to Ottawa. She was also involved in the first Manifest Magic festival in June, a rural celebration of electronic music, theatre and yoga.

The street gathers to watch fire juggling at the Faraday Street Party. Photos by John Taylor

A gathering of neighbours How to throw the ultimate street party Story by Rebecca Peng

Over the past 13 years, the annual Faraday Street block parties have taken on a life of their own. With close to a 160 guests this year, they’re much grander than the average street party. However, the Faraday parties can serve as a model for any festively inclined street. Evelyn Eldridge, a Faraday neighbour, refers to herself as the “head delegator” of the whole affair. “It sounds like I don’t do anything, but I do!” One of the first things she does is phone the City of Ottawa Special Events department (613-580-2424, extension 28164) to obtain a Special Occasion Permit. The application needs to be subCooking up a storm.

Moon jump makes the party.

mitted in writing 30 days before the event, which means planning starts in the spring. Years of experience have revealed the ideal time to amass one’s neighbours is just before school finishes. “Literally, people take off very quickly.” In May, a form is sent out to the neighbours, asking them to save the date, RSVP and contribute a small amount for the barbeque. If there’s extra money, it always goes to charity. At the party, families pitch in and bring either a dessert or a salad. “Early on, we were getting some not so great food,” Eldridge admits, “but then one neighbour had this great idea to make it into a contest. And man, has our food improved. It’s amazing what a little competition can do.” The other tasks are divided between the neighbours. Someone has to pick up and drop off the barricades from the City of Ottawa Surface Operations Branch. Children’s games and crafts need to be planned and set up. Face painting is a must. And kids of all ages have come to prefer Circus Delights for the much adored bouncy house. There’s also the barbeque, a juggling show, volleyball and music to create the atmosphere. The street party has become a transformative event. “Since we started, Faraday’s become just a complete fairy-tale street,” Eldridge says. The party became the catalyst for the neighbours to truly get to know one another. “It’s like Mr. Roger’s neighbourhood. The children just love it. They all go out to other events and vacation together. The kids all play together.” And, thanks to a few great street parties and some excellent planning, Faraday now has 13 years of memories, with many more to come.

Applicants will be asked to provide proof of financial need. Schedules and fees may be subject to change. Fees include HST.

MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR

Consider the health benefits of getting some active living into your routine, by signing up for a team or individual sport. Learn something new or build on skills you have. Maybe you can add some beauty to your routine by exploring a music, drama or art class.

Katherine Hobbs Councillor

(613) 580 – 2485

katherine.hobbs@ottawa.ca

Maybe that routine you crave is a new dance or exercise routine. There are choices available for all ages, from two to 102. If a break from routine is what you crave, then it’s time to sign up for that activity you’ve thought about starting but haven’t gotten around to. City of Ottawa classes are affordable, convenient and offer a variety of options second to none. This fall, I recommend everyone get some Parks and Rec into their routine.

Being physically active every day is enjoyable and safe for most people. Health benefits of physical activity include improved fitness, strength and feeling better. Stay active at the Hintonburg and Fisher Park Community Centres!

For many, September represents an end to the carefree possibilities of summer and a return to the routines of autumn and winter. When planning your routine, take a good look at the wide variety of activities available at Ottawa’s arts and recreation facilities this fall.

Maire Jim Watson

d’art. Peut-être avez-vous besoin d’une nouvelle « routine » de danse ou d’exercices. Il y a des possibilités pour les personnes de tous âges, de 2 à 102 ans. Si c’est rompre avec la routine que vous souhaitez, alors le moment est venu de vous inscrire à cette activité qui vous attire, mais pour laquelle vous n’avez pas encore réussi à vous décider. Les cours de la Ville d’Ottawa sont abordables et pratiques, et offrent un choix sans pareil. Cet automne, je recommande à tous d’intégrer les Parcs et Loisirs à leur routine.

Faire de l’activité physique tous les jours est agréable et sécuritaire pour la plupart des gens. Les bienfaits pour la santé associés à l’activité physique comprennent une amélioration de la condition physique ainsi qu’un sentiment de bien-être accru.

Rethinking free movie nights Community and copyright

By Jessie Archambault

The Hintonburg Community Association (HCA) received a notice from Audio Ciné Films regarding copyright infringements in late July. This resulted in the cancellation of the HCA’s last free outdoor movie night of the summer on August 10. The HCA is being asked to pay $1,800 plus taxes for the public viewing of movies that were presented since 2009. The fate of the seasonal activity is still uncertain for next year. “It’s still a bit of a shock,” said

Paulette Dozois, chair of the HCA Arts Committee. “I didn’t think we’d get dinged like this.” Audio Ciné Films protects the rights of big studios and smaller ones against copyright infringements in Canada. They specialize in providing licenses to organizations for the public showing of movies. The firm claims the association breached the public performance of films right and must reimburse $200 per film shown publicly. Only nine movies were selected since 2009 for a total of $2,039 including all taxes to be paid by the HCA.

“It’s been quite a big disappointment,” said Dozois. The same fee per film is also required if the association continues to have outdoor movies next summer. With two movies presented each night, a total of $400 per movie night is required. Dozois said the activity is not a money-making thing, but a free “drive-in without a car.” “It was always meant as a small local thing,” she said. For the past 10 years, the HCA has presented a variety of movies to the residents of Hintonburg including Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Beethoven. Each movie night starts with an indoor presentation for younger kids. At sunset, an outdoor film for tweens and their parents is projected on a wall behind the community center on Wellington Street. The event brings people of all ages together. “We’ve had families coming religiously,” said Dozois. One of them is Catherine Henry’s family. They haven’t had a chance to attend any of the movie nights this summer, but have been regulars over the years. “It’s a fun and low-key affordable night out for the family,” said Catherine Henry. “The people attending this event reflect the diversity found in the community.” Henry brought her two daughters Elsa, 8, and Jaya, 10, to the indoor movies multiple times over the years and said her husband had brought them to the outdoor presentations as well. However, free outdoor movie nights may not be back next year in Hintonburg. HCA board members will meet this September and discuss the activity’s fate. If the HCA chooses to preserve outdoor movie nights, the Association will need to pay the fee per film. Other communities in Ottawa present outdoor movies throughout the summer and ask attendees for donations in order to be able to pay the required fee. “I would happily contribute,” said Henry. “I hope families that can’t afford a donation would still feel welcome to come and enjoy the movie.”

Zebra finches by APRi enliven this urban wall. Photos by Kathleen Wilker

KT CATCH UP Taking art outside His distinct, way-larger-than-life zebra finches have spent weeks gracing the exterior west wall of Orange Gallery. And on August 15, Montréal born and raised artist ARPi, who has recently moved to Hintonburg, will have the opportunity to introduce his new neighbours to a wider selection of his art when he opens a solo show at the gallery. ARPi’s interest in visual art has deep roots. Witnessing graffiti in the neighbourhood freight yard and city walls feeds his hunger to work in the public realm. He enjoys the potential visibility this marginal art form, which occupies public space, has to offer. ARPi is known for mingling beautifully-rendered realistic animals with more traditional graffiti. Self-taught, ARPi’s has been working as a professional artist since 2006. Although he loves the neighbourhood, he misses Montreal’s trains and commuters as public transit is one of his favourite things about a city. Westboro Duathlete Competing for Team Canada in the World Duathlon Championships on Saturday August 10, Westboro’s Adam Eikenberry, joined over 1,000 athletes from 24 participating countries.

Adam Eikenberry, competing for Team Canada.

Eikenberry, who is sponsored by Eurosports, qualified by competing in a race in Coburg last July when he learned that the Worlds were being held in Ottawa instead of in Spain. What made this race extra special for Eikenberry was that the transition zone from the 10km run to the 40km bike and then to the final 5km run was at the War Museum, where many of his friends, family and neighbours could easily come out to cheer. With the first 10km route running through Tunney’s Pasture, Eikenberry definitely had a home turf advantage. He didn’t go into the race with a particular time goal, although he had trained and prepared to the best of his ability, as he said a lot would depend on the wind, especially during the cycling portion of the race. 39 stories too high for Hintonburg Despite a sudden thunderstorm driving the outdoor open house into a garage, on July 29 many residents attended both the on-site open house and the later public meeting for the Claridge Homes application for a 39-storey building at 1040 Somerset Street West, an area currently zoned for five stories.  In a letter to the community following the event, Councillor Katherine Hobbs noted that a building of this scale and impact needs to “embrace, help, and improve our community…this cannot be an afterthought, and must be an integral part of any proposal to add hundreds of residents to our community.” Hobbs also noted that a 39-storey building would be the tallest in Kitchissippi and one of the tallest in the city but she did not think that the developer presented “a convincing argument for why this site warrants it” and further stated that “without any justification, I can see no reason to allow this to stand.”

“This pool challenge has also been a great way to get us plugged into other community groups. Miya has been to several community events at the pools, and I’ve connected with other community organizers,” says Anita. “And it’s been fun, because we’ll go to a new pool and find out that’s the local spot of some of her friends from school or other groups.” With the typically erratic weather we’re always surprised by here in Ottawa, some days are perfect for a cool dip while others are a little too chilly, but there is still fun to be had in our parks. “On cool days when Miya doesn’t want to be in the pool for long, she often enjoys playing on the play structures or doing a craft with the lifeguards. The city lifeguards are really great with kids and the craft tables at the pools are fantastic!” praises Anita.

Kitchissippi Wading Pool Challenge

Story and photos by Marah Shields

Anita Grace and her daughter, Miya, from Byron Avenue are on a mission. This summer, they will visit every one of the 10 wading pools and three splash pads in the neighbourhood. Sitting poolside in the shade at Hampton Park’s little blue watering hole as Miya dips her feet, Anita scans her mental checklist. “This makes for number 11. We’ve only got two left.” Earlier this year, the Grace family was blessed with a second daughter. Toting around a beautiful bundle of a baby - whom Miya explains is only “zero” - Anita wanted to make sure her eldest still had a special summer. Here’s how: “At the beginning of the season, the Kitchissippi Times had a map of all the wading pools and splash pads in Kitchissippi. I cut it out and put it on the fridge and started our Kitchissippi Wading Pool Challenge. Every time we go to a new pool, Miya puts a sticker on the map. It’s been a way to have a goal this summer and it gets us out and about. We usually go to Iona Park and it’s a great pool, but it’s nice to check out other places.” While Miya keeps track on the fridge, Anita has been keeping track

Congratulations to

Nicole Colbeck of Westboro who will hear the full story of her 1925 home and its move - possibly by horse-drawn flatbed to its current Westboro location from local Houstalgia historian, David Allston. Thank you to everyone who entered. The creative entries are proof that homes in Kitchissippi have almost as much character and charm as their residents. Here’s a taste of some of our favourites: Neighbourhood: McKellar Park Age of house: 1915-1925. “We originally thought it was built in the 20’s because of some of the architectural features but recently we did a reno and there was a newspaper in the wall from 1917, with a headline of the execution of Mata Hari.” Neighbourhood: Westboro Beach Age of house: probably 1957.  “The tree on the front lawn is a bitternut hickory and the city forester says that it could only have grown under the canopy of an old growth forest.” Neighbourhood: Westboro Age of house: 1892. “Our house is no doubt one of the oldest houses today on Churchill (then called Main Street) … we love to believe that this house was a traditional farm house.”

Pumpkins in the Park: Volunteers Needed for 2013!! Not to rush us through summer, but the Civic Hospital Neighbourhood Association’s 3rd Annual Pumpkins in the Park event in October will be here before we know it. Volunteers are needed to help prepare for it and sponsors are needed to help keep this event free. The time commitment for volunteers is minimal and it’s a lot of fun to be a part of. Most of the planning will be done electronically with 2 in person meetings prior to the event. Pumpkins in the Park continues to grow. We had over 250 people attend last year and we have a couple of new ideas which we hope will bring even more families out to this free community event. Please email Amanda at President@chnaottawa.ca and let her know you’re interested and she’ll add you to the distribution list for Pumpkin volunteers.
