GRIN GRANT 2023

The Rosemont Community School

We are pleased to announce the successful project for the GRIN grant this year. It goes to The Rosemont Community School. We had three fantastic projects submitted and the committee was challenged in their adjudication. The Rosemont Community School project is called “The Grandmother Garden”. It will be located next to their outdoor learning space with giant rocks in a circle called “The Grandfather Rocks”. It will be a school-wide project for pupils in grades K-8. They will learn about growing plants, their life cycles, soil ecosystems and native plants for food and medicinal uses. The Rosemont elders, parent association and community association have been invited to be a part of the project. We would now like to present the GRIN grant to Marissa Poitras, the project leader and staff member of Rosemont Community School.

GRIN GRANT 2022

The Cathedral Community Fridge Garden

The 2022 GRIN recipient was The Cathedral Community Fridge Garden. RHS provided the funds necessary for a plot in the Cathedral Community Gardens to be planted, harvested, and processed, and distributed by the folks behind the Cathedral Community Fridge. Congratulations to all involved, and especially Michelle Dakiniewich, Robyn Rechenmacher, Jesse Pruden and Brianna Kroner who came to share the Winter Social evening with us. What these community builders did was (no pun intended) ground breaking! Their presentation was informative and inspiring, and outlined the serious work and a collaborative spirit it took for their idea to become such a success. It is no secret that now more than ever, food security is an important aspect when considering quality of life. Their project can be replicated in other neighbourhoods, providing hope and resilience in challenging times. From nutritional needs to the social aspect of “breaking bread”, reinvigorating the urban garden experience can only benefit Regina’s citizens.
