Preparing for Spring 2019

In spite of the cold and snow spring is just around the corner.

The Mackenzie Art Gallery will be offering programming in our garden 2 evenings in August.

Remember the deadline for garden applications in March 25th. We are receiving many applications from new gardeners which will be accepted on a first come basis. 

Handy Tractor Fundraiser

Grow Regina is inviting everyone to help us if you can buy a tractor for our garden.

Grow Regina sees many benefits of purchasing a dependable garden tractor with appropriate attachments – benefits for volunteers, for the gardens, for gardeners and their families, and for the bees! But we need your help! We already have a good start to our savings, but just need a little more.

Click under the dream tractor image to the right or click on the Facebook link to help us reach our goal. We will be accepting tractor donations sent in with the 2019 applications and also at the Annual General Meeting.

Any dollar amount is welcome, just like our work-bees, “many hands make light work”.  Thank you.
