Fielding Drive Public School Gardens
The RPCA Gardening Committee has been able to support the Fielding Drive Public School Gardens by providing volunteers to help maintain the veggie beds, plant a pumpkin patch, create a pollinator garden and renew the ornamental gardens that anchor the school entrance. Produce from the veggie beds is slated for donation to our local food supply.
Located at the Fielding Public School (777 Fielding Dr, Ottawa, ON K1V 7G1), the Fielding Drive Public School Garden is maintained by volunteers from the school and the community.
