ABOUT OUR PROJECT

Our project primarily focuses on horticultural education and inspiring people to garden through a series of educational and hands-on workshops and events. Through our Garden Makeover program, we will help three people to establish and maintain gardens. In partnership with Souls Harbour Rescue Mission (SHRM) and Enactus Regina (Feedbank), we will grow at least 3000 lb of fresh organic vegetables in the summer of 2020, 100% of which will be donated to SHRM. During the gardening season, we will be promoting organic and cost-effective gardening among university students and community members.

 

Our two main goals are to promote urban gardening and to help ameliorate food insecurity. We will accomplish these goals through a workshop series, a community garden where we will grow and donate over 3000 lbs of fresh organic produce, and a Garden Makeover project. In doing so, we will engage students and youth, create over 300 hours of volunteering opportunities, educate the community about small-scale gardening, composting and food-waste reduction, and experiment with cost-effective and accessible gardening methods.
