“Making good use of existing resources is something that people do when they act sustainably.”

Jason Garlough, Hidden Harvest Ottawa

This video tells the story of how Ottawa’s Hidden Harvest harnesses the power of community knowledge by accessing open data from the City of Ottawa to plot the location of more 4000 of the city’s food-bearing trees and then using that information to plan their harvests, which deliver fresh local food that may otherwise to go waste into the local community.

“The power of community knowledge.”
