Hidden Harvest Ottawa, a project of the Tides Foundation, is a volunteer-based social enterprise engaged in revealing, harvesting and sharing the fruit and nuts around Ottawa. Through our volunteer-led harvests, educational programs,
and partnerships, we seek to make good use of local food and inspire community members to steward the bounty growing in their own neighbourhood. We bring together diverse groups of energetic volunteers who while experiencing the pleasures of harvesting, get educated on local fruit and nut trees and the people in need in their neighboUrhood. We believe that these actions contribute to the well-being of our volunteers and our community. Through Hidden Harvest’s activities we nurture a tree friendly city which has a significant positive impact on climate change and sustainability.
More details:
We are committed to getting food that would otherwise go to waste to those who can use it. We have access to public and private property. We share each harvest in four (4) ways:
- 1⁄4 goes to the nearest food agency (shelter, food bank, etc)
- 1⁄4 is shared with the homeowner (on private property)
- 1⁄4 is shared with the volunteer harvesters
- 1⁄4 goes back to Hidden Harvest Ottawa (used in outreach activities, sponsored events or shared with local food processors & restaurants)

Core Values
