The Winakwa Community Garden had a good growing season and held monthly garden club sessions. Our garden had several generous donations which include a secondary water tote (Atkins-Strong family), cement patio blocks (Kyle Schott), an ornamental bench (Randall Weslak), wood for various projects (McMunn and Yates) and 10 additional raised garden boxes (CN Rail). Windsor Park Collegiate and College Beliveau students ran their garden club programs through their schools. Art students from both adjacent high schools created beautiful artwork for our raised garden beds. Chloe Card is the talented and creative student whose artwork will be showcased as our official garden signs this coming spring.
We look forward to continued partnership with both high school staff, students, the Louis Riel School Division, the Winakwa Community Centre Board, MLA Audrey Gordon, and the community residents on growing this initiative.

We wanted to reach out to all of our valued gardeners regarding the upcoming 2020 Gardening Season.
The Winakwa Community Garden Committee has fantastic news, we’ve been given the green light to continue the garden program for this years coming growing season. We are currently figuring out social distancing and other protocols to keep everyone safe at the garden site. Stay tuned as we work out best practices during the pandemic. Happy planting and see you in the garden!
