OHS Public Interventions

The mission of the Ottawa Horticultural Society is “To cultivate an interest in plants and gardening in order to create a beautiful community.”   In pursuing this mission, the OHS at times believes it is important to speak up on issues that affect greenspace in Ottawa. 

In March 2021, the OHS submitted comments on the draft Official Plan for the City of Ottawa.  The submission can be found here.

In November 2021 the Board of Directors approved a Policy on Public Interventions that provides guidance on when the OHS engages in public policy debates.
