Congratulations Grow Regina! Each year RCE Saskatchewan recognizes creative and innovative ways that members of our communities are helping educate themselves and others about issues… »
Each Committee has a Board Representative, who is responsible for overseeing the committee’s activities and for reporting to the Board on a monthly basis.
The Communications Committee is responsible for newsletters, web updates, and Facebook administration. Submissions of photos, stories, videos and recipes to the committee are welcome.
The Construction and Maintenance Committee is responsible for coordinating construction projects in the garden. Front entrance signage, composting stations and raised beds are examples of the project coming this year. Anyone with carpentry or construction experience is welcome!
The Fundraising, Planning and Development Committee is responsible for developing a master garden plan and nurturing sponsor partnerships. To facilitate this goal, Grow Regina is seeking professional design assistance to develop a Master Site Plan and architectural theme, to complement the existing garden layout, pathway, and irrigation infrastructure. This will be the blueprint for future garden development and will be used to support necessary and an aggressive fundraising campaign.
The Garden Operations Committee is responsible for the daily garden/compost maintenance activities and coordinating the care of the Food Bank plots including planting, watering and harvesting. The committee is developing a long term plan to ensure the garden maintenance procedures are adequate and that the fee structure covers the operating costs and provides for any contingencies. Grow Regina has reserved up to 15% of the YARA-Grow Regina Community Garden to grow crops for donation to the Food Bank. Everyone with a ‘green thumb’ is encouraged to participate!
The Membership Committee is responsible for garden plot application and allotment management. This committee is restricted to Board member participation.
The Orchard Committee is responsible for approving species selection and assumes operational management of the orchard. The committee is developing a long term plan to ensure the orchard maintenance procedures are adequate and that the fee structure covers the operating costs and provides for any contingencies. Planning for orchard expansion is occurring in conjunction with the development of a long range master plan for the garden as a whole.
The Social and Education Committee is responsible for education programs like Plant a Row • Grow a Row, garden tours, workshops and the summer/fall BBQs, plus much more.
