We received a nice email from Karen Watkins at Grow Regina about the official opening of the Yara-Grow Regina Community Garden, which is coming up on Tuesday, June 23rd at the new garden at 3500 Queen Street.

An official ceremony will be held at 10:30AM with Mayor Pat Fiacco, Andrew Swenson from Yara and Wayne Hellquist, CEO of the Regina and District Food Bank.   There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony, tour of the gardens and refreshments.

Mrs. Louise Arendt has been keeping us up to date with the local garden project for the past couple years now as the site has been selected and prepared.  If you haven’t been to the gardens, now’s the time to check it out.  They’ve got a beautiful site for growing flowers and vegetables and they are also planning a permanent fruit tree orchard.

The garden project is quickly turning into a real community asset and is making a lot of people very happy.  Please stop by on Tuesday and see what the buzz is about!

It’s a great picture, but we really need to get some local photographers involved in this site.  Don’t you agree?  email info@lcaregina.ca to get involved!
