We are excited to announce the continuation of our Wanipigow Garden and Trail Project in Hollow Water, Manitoba. Consider this an open invitation to join us while we tend to gardens, swim in the Wanipigow river and enjoy the land with great company.

Our goals for this summer are to work with our community partners at the Adam Hardisty Health Center and Ravens Creek ecotourism to support gardening on three large plots and over a dozen raised beds for community elders. The gardens will be the location for educational workshops on starting a garden, pickling and preserving, fall planting and cooking in season. We also plan to work with local youth and wilderness experts to build trails which showcase places of particular beauty, ecological and cultural significance.

Hollow Waters traditional lands are located in the Heart of the Boreal, the worlds largest remaining intact Boreal forest. This makes it all the more important for our planet that development in this community puts the health of community members and the ecosystem first. Our gardens and trails will help to demonstrate that opportunities can be created without damaging this global ecological treasure.

We support our volunteers by providing transportation to and from the project are provided as well as food and comfortable camping accommodations. Good times are guaranteed! Let us know when you are available to join us and we will do our best to give you the opportunity to experience the Heart of the Boreal and contribute to our work in this unique way.
