Social Mission

Harvest Noir has a social mission to promote local food and sustainability in a vibrant community format, and is a fund-raiser for BioRegional North America, a non-profit environmental organization based out of the Hub in Ottawa. BioRegional is headquartered internationally in London, England at the iconic BedZED eco-neighborhood.

Proceeds from Harvest Noir go towards helping BioRegional North America carry on its nonprofit mission to create model places where genuinely sustainable, healthy lifestyles that promote a 70 per cent+ reduction in carbon footprint are convenient for the ordinary people who live or work there. BioRegional has been pioneering these approaches in places like the UK, California, and Washington State and now has a new focus on bringing innovative lessons back to Ottawa, where the organization’s North American offices are based at Hub Ottawa. In Ottawa, BioRegional is involved with:

  • BioRegional is a co-founder of the Ottawa Centre EcoDistrict in the downtown core.
  • BioRegional is helping green developer Windmill create the first One Planet Community in Canada at the Isles, on the former Domtar lands on Chaudiere and Albert Islands. BioRegional’s ambitious One Planet Living sustainability framework will guide the development of the Isles and help make it the greenest neighborhood in Canada.
