    Gardens Manitoba has been invited to take responsibility for the planting and care of two garden beds at Riel House in St. Vital, Winnipeg. The site is operated by Parks Canada.


    The gardening opportunity at Riel House would involve planting the gardens, commencing in May, and would run until October. Volunteers are needed to maintain the beds during the growing season and to provide mentorship to visiting school groups and the public. There is an opportunity to create a demonstration garden using heritage seeds. Parks Canada is open to donating the garden's harvest to local food banks.


    Before accepting, we must ensure that volunteers are available. If you are looking for a unique project in which to share your skills and time, please contact us at your earliest convenience. Please give some consideration to the amount of time which you may have available.


    Any plans we make to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity during this growing season are entirely dependent on volunteer participation. Let us know as soon as you are able.

    A new software takes time. A task can take hours at the beginning, and then after repeats, it becomes clockwork.

    This week was moving Gardens Manitoba membership into Wild Apricot. There were hick ups, but by midday it was done, and an email blast went out effortlessly as a way of celebrating. So at the moment, this site is pretty spartan at the moment, but that's gonna change.

    I'm especially excited about this feature, the news area, which I'm treating as a blog space.

    Time to get some conversations going, especially between members and those who frequent this site.

    Hope you come back for a visit. Keep your eyes open for guest bloggers, and timely topics for us gardeners. Feel free to comment, and thanks for dropping by.

    The best way to get the January Blues behind you is to just enjoy the season. Start something new!

    That's what we're doing at Gardens Manitoba. It's time for a new look, and time to get with what's contemporary. So we've started working on a totally new website! This one will be easier to update, and hopefully provide a better experience for you.

    So please come back over the next few months and see what we've added, and feel free to offer suggestions and comments.

    Bye for now!
