Gardens Manitoba appreciates your volunteer work at our events in 2014. Without you we couldn't hold these very successful events that also contribute to various horticulture organizations. You are invited to attend our second volunteer appreciation evening in conjunction with our Annual General Meeting (AGM).

The Board of Gardens Manitoba is investigating establishing a greenhouse with Canadian Mennonite University (CMU). A letter of intent was signed in September 2013 between Gardens Manitoba and the CMU to investigate the feasibility of building a shared greenhouse on the CMU property. A full-time student at the university has developed a draft proposal looking into designs, costs, possible funding sources etc.
At present a geodesic dome is the design being considered. This design is partly passive solar.
Included would be classroom/meeting room space as well as growing space for our plant sales and programs.
This is a very exciting project and we are looking forward to the draft proposal.
