Welcome to Edible Landscaping Ottawa. We design, build, and install innovative landscape designs to create beautiful and functional green spaces. Not only will your yard look nicer, but you will also be able to harvest the organically grown fruits and vegetables that grow there.

Gavin, owner and founder of Edible Landscaping Ottawa is passionate about sharing his knowledge about living and eating sustainably, no matter how much property his clients have.

WHY GROW YOUR OWN FOOD?
There are many wonderful reasons for growing your own food but here are some for your consideration:
- Eat Fresh! Eat Local!
Picking your food straight from your backyard is about as local as it gets! The benefits of this marvellous convenience apply to a broader picture known as carbon footprint or 'foodprint' as your food hasn't had to travel thousands of miles to reach you!
- Food Security!
Connecting people, and community, to their food sources has a plethora of benefits from social and recreational to improved ecological health in a region. But what does 'Food Security' mean? It means having a reliable source or access to a sufficient amount of nutritious food. For more information about Food Security in the Ottawa area, and how you can take part in improving our citys food security, visit Ottawa Food Policy Council to learn more.
- Healthy Choices!
Growing your own food empowers you to make choices about the methods used during the growing stages. This means you can eat in-season, ripe food that has avoided pesticides, fungicides, artifical fertislisers, Genetically modified ingredients to name a few, frequently used in commercial farming practises. Have a peek at 'Top 10 Reasons to Go Organic'.
Growing your own food, allowing plants to naturally 'do their thing', means you're not paying grocery store prices! The Ottawa valleys growing conditions allow for a wide selection of food growing plant types.
- Health Benefits!
Not too surprisingly there are health benefits from the process of simply gardening. See some personal testimonys in '6 Health Benefits of Gardening''.
