In September 2017, we opened our Rick Hansen Healing Garden. Accessible Media joined us, and harvested this wonderful video about what we do and why it matters.

They say “The Rick Hansen Healing Garden at Common Roots Urban Farm is something all Haligonians should be incredibly proud of. Made possible with a barrier-buster grant from the Rick Hansen Foundation; the Healing Garden gives hospital patients, people with various disabilities, apartment dwellers and everyone else a chance to enjoy nature and grow fresh produce right in the middle of our fair city.”

Hugest thanks to the Rick Hansen Foundation and Canada 150 for enabling this project, building on previous support from the Kinsmen Club of Halifax, the Shaw Group, the Halifax Foundation, Emma Fitzgerald, and our many many volunteers.
