Grow Regina has two accessible raised gardens, the original Evergreen garden and our new Farm Credit Canada garden.
The Evergreen accessible raised gardens
Rectangular and square raised beds under 90 sq ft.available for gardeners with mobility limitations or who have difficulty gardening at the ground level.
Green Grants, sponsored by Wal-Mart Canada and led by Evergreen, provided funds in 2009 from which Grow Regina developed the Evergreen Accessible Garden area on the southeast corner of the garden.
Grow Regina worked with Saskatchewan Abilities Council (SAC), Saskatchewan Association for the Rehabilitation of Brain Injuries (SARBI) and the South Saskatchewan Independent Living Centre (SSILC) to design this garden area to accommodate individuals with varying degrees of disabilities. Grow Regina continues to provide an accessible space for all to enjoy the garden.
Farm Credit Canada accessible garden
Farm Credit Canada accessible garden was built in the fall of 2019 and will be ready for gardeners in the Spring of 2020. This garden is funded by Farm Credit Canada Regina Spirit Fund which granted Grow Regina $5,000.00 to build this garden. The FCC Spirit Fund is granted to projects that are in and enhance life in Regina. Click here to learn more about the FCC Regina Spirit Fund.
The FCC garden was built by Doug Bouck Grow Regina gardener and board member who volunteered his talent and time to make a really beautiful as well as functional garden.
The 12 accessible beds are 3ft x 10ft each positioned off of the ground for any of our gardeners who would like to garden at either a standing or sitting level. This garden was built for our gardeners who find gardening at ground level difficult but who want to enjoy growing their own food.
