The richness of a successful society depends on ordinary people who have ideas how to improve their community. Grow Regina Community Garden is one such idea: to create a community garden where horticulture and art are rooted in the soil.

The long-term vision of Grow Regina is to develop the garden into a public meeting place. The Gazebo, in addition to adding beauty, will provide a meeting place for 300 gardeners to meet. It will also provide a unique cultural space for school classrooms to plan their planting, for culinary demonstrations, literary readings, workshops, dance, musical performances and other cultural collaborations.

 The installation of the Gazebo will transform the site into a world-class community garden that will set the standard for what a community garden can be.

Victor Cicansky's involvement in the public art project began years ago, with the design and preparation of a sculptural entrance for the Queen Street Pathway. Thef entranceway was completed and the sculptures installed in August 2010. The Gazebo is the final component of that project, with construction and installation expected by mid-summer.

Fundraising to complete the gazebo is underway, boosted by a recent $90,000 Community Spaces award fron Federated Co-ops. The fundraising campaign will be continuing through the winter and spring.  


About Grow Regina Community Garden

Grow Regina is a group of people gardening collectively who have a mandate from the from the City to enhance the social and economic and cultural well-being of Regina residents. The energy and inventiveness of this group makes it a standout as an inspiration, demonstrating what is possible when a group of gardeners come together to grow food for themselves and others. It’s a model for school yards, for backyards and even front yards and other spaces in the city.

Classes from Ruth Buck School have already been involved, learning how to plant and tend a vegetable garden. As committed young citizens, they have donated their harvest to the Regina Food Bank, providing families and children like themselves with good food with for healthy bodies and minds.
