Growing our Community: A student design competition for a community garden pavilion
CALL FOR DESIGNS
About the Project: Community Garden Pavilion
As part of Canada’s 150th anniversary, Aga Khan Foundation Canada (AKFC) and Just Food invite students from across Canada to submit a design proposal for an outdoor pavilion for a new community garden in Ottawa, Ontario.
Growing our Community will bring Canadians together in 2017 to plant and maintain a new community food garden. This project will enhance the quality of life in the neighbouring community and allow Canadians to explore the local-to-global connections around issues of food security and environmental sustainability. Growing our Community is funded by Ontario 150 and is part of Ottawa 2017’s community legacy project to install 20 new community gardens across the city for Canada’s 150 anniversary celebrations.
An event will be held on September 21, 2017, to celebrate the garden’s harvest and the winning pavilion design. The event will include artists, musicians, and youth speakers.
One design will be selected as winner of the Growing our Community design competition. The winning entry will have their design built at the Just Food Farm site, receive a $5,000 prize, and attend the celebration in Ottawa.
