B&B Hydroponic Gardening: Regina's Best Kept Secret
“Don’t be afraid of the ‘Hydroponics Store Guy’,” Darin Wheatley says with a laugh, referring to the apprehension some people feel towards his business. Wheatley, owner of B&B Hydroponic Gardening, explains that he’s heard it more than once: anecdotes of people curiously passing by his quaint shop, but failing to stop in.
“Hydro has a weird stereotype,” he admits, “but our work here is all about promoting a healthy, alternative lifestyle”.
Primary Health: Pioneers in Creating Greener Neighbourhoods
Green spaces and gardens are popping up in many places: on roof tops, in alleys, and now in front of office spaces. “We want to be leaders in creating communities that support health and wellness,” Kaylee Michnik passionately explained, sitting outside on a picnic table nestled amidst a newly planted garden. A Public Health Nutritionist with the Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region’s (RQHR) Primary Health Care, Michnik and her colleagues are translating theory into practice by designing a green space immediately out front their Winnipeg street office.
The Street Workers Advocacy Project: Serving Those in Need
Walking through the doors of the Street Workers Advocacy Project—or SWAP as it’s more commonly known within the community—one can already begin to feel the benevolence that runs throughout the core of this organization. A not-for-profit that has been active in Regina for almost 21 years, SWAP provides direct support and service to our city’s most vulnerable citizens. SWAP works with individuals who have been involved in street prostitution or street life in some way, helping both them and their families’ transition to happier, healthier lives.
