Community Co-lead, CCE Brokering (Ottawa) Working Group
Jason Garlough is our community co-lead for the Community-Campus Engagement Brokering (Ottawa) working group. Jason has been working with small Canadian businesses, non-profits and community-based organizations for the past sixteen years and has a passion for helping organizations make better use of their existing resources. In 2012 Jason and Katrina Siks co-founded Hidden Harvest Ottawa – a social enterprise – with the intent of helping Ottawa become a food-tree friendly city. The impact of their program is clearly visible in many nearby neighbourhoods.
Jason is now the Executive Director of the new Ottawa Eco-Talent Network and manages a network of advisors & partners to provide pro bono advice, research capacity, and other assistance to support community action on environmental sustainability.
