The activities in the community development program at the LCRC are consistent with the principles of:
- Support for empowerment
- Listening to the community
- Transformational practice
- Partnership and collaboration
These four principles form the basis of community development work and translate into various activities carried out by the Lowertown Community Resource Centre for the benefit of the Lowertown residents and which meet their priority needs.
Contact Alain, our Community Development Agent if you have any questions or require more information. He is ready to meet with any and all residents to share on ideas for initiatives that they would like to carry out in our neighborhood. You can reach him at: email@example.com and 613-789-3930, ext: 314
Beginning each spring, people interested in gardening come together to work in the community gardens. From planting to harvesting, the people meet and work together to do the tasks needed in order to get a bountiful garden.
