Our communities are blooming!
Growing vegetable and flowers in our community has been instrumental in reducing stress, boosting self-esteem, promoting positive relationships, and contributing to the overall health and well-being of our residents.
The gardens have made our communities feel more like home while deeply impacting our resident’s well-being.
By creating a sense of purpose and accomplishment, gardening has helped boost self-esteem among residents. The social aspect of gardening fosters camaraderie and community, promoting positive relationships. Overall, the gardens have created a positive, beautiful and uplifting environment that also fosters food security in our communities.
Plants are grown in raised beds built on site. Our residents and volunteers are growing a mix of edible and decorative plants for our community to enjoy.
Our Halifax site has also built a chicken coop where residents will care for the birds and collect eggs.
Get involved in the gardens!
