Community Garden Expansion – Healthy Living

Quick Facts

Country: Canada

Grant Program: Awakening

Year of Grant: 2022-2023

Grant Amount: $1,000

In 2022, the Battleford Family Health Centre supported three community gardens and worked with 120 community members ranging from infants to the elderly.

There are currently single, double and triple plots assigned to families based on need and want to help with food security and healthy meals.  A weekly “hands on” school program with kindergarten students taught them to plant, grow, and harvest their own vegetable sand edible flowers.

The Awakening grant of $1000 substantially helped in opening the third community garden site in partnership with a local church.
