Since 2007, Sustainable Living Ottawa East (SLOE) has been part of a low-key but important renaissance in Old Ottawa East. SLOE helps plan, develop, network and fundraise for projects that support our vision. Many projects have been initiated and/or supported by SLOE members, including: the Main Farmers’ Market, the Ottawa East Community Garden, the Lees Community Garden, the Children’s Garden at Legget Park, the Rideau River Nature Trail, the Midtown Footbridge, and the Neighbour-to-Neighbour electricity efficiency audit project. And behind the existing initiatives is a world of possibilities for increased local sustainability. This is good work. There is satisfaction and joy in it. Please join us in fueling the momentum.
Old Ottawa East
Bounded by the Rideau River to the East, the canal to the West and the Queensway and Nicholas to the north, Old Ottawa East is a geographically distinct community in Ottawa.
SLOE is a committee of the Ottawa East Community Association.
