Silver Spring Farm Garlic Project began in 1997 as a fundraiser for the Ottawa Carleton Association for Persons with Developmental Disabilities. Money raised from this project goes towards holiday gifts for OCAPDD individuals, many of whom have no families, special services, special classes and many other needed items.. The Garlic Project is run entirely by volunteers. Each year volunteers plant between 35,000 to 40,000 garlic bulbs. They are then covered for the winter. Come April the hay is removed to allow growth and the weeds appear. Between the months of April and July volunteers are needed to weed the rows of garlic weekly so that the garlic plant is not choaked and can grow to its full potential. At the end of July the garlic is picked and again many volunteers are required to clean, sort, braid and get things ready for the sale the first week in August. Volunteers are required to cover the garlic fields with Hay. Approx the last week in November. On the job training / assistance is provided!!

What is Leisure Buddies? Leisure Buddies is about creating friendships between people who may not otherwise have had the chance to meet. Contact between individuals in the community and persons with developmental disabilities seldom occurs spontaneously. The Leisure Buddy program facilitates friendships by pairing individuals in one-to-one relationships. A Leisure Buddy friendship helps to break down barriers to inclusion and provides opportunities for shared experience, laughter and support. What is an intellectual disability? A developmental disability, also referred to as an intellectual disability, is a term used to describe any condition that includes a lifelong impairment to a person's ability to learn or to adapt to their environment. People with a developmental disability do not necessarily have a recognizable condition. Some examples of diagnosed conditions are autism, Down Syndrome and Williams Syndrome. The degree of disability varies greatly from person to person. Developmental disabilities may or may not be accompanied by physical disabilities. Most individuals live in a group home or on their own with support and may have limited contact with the larger community. The Leisure Buddy program provides a safe and caring way for our individuals to become more independent, and to enjoy the benefits of a special friendship which extends beyond their family members and paid care providers. What type of commitment do I need to make to be a Leisure Buddy Companion? The most important part of the Leisure Buddy program is friendship. Buddies make contact with each other once a week by telephone. It is expected that one-to-one outings will happen twice per month.
Location: This varies depending on who your are matched with.
