Rotary Club of Windsor-St. Clair Children's Greenhouse Official Opening
May 10, 2018
This morning the new Rotary Club of Windsor-St. Clair Children's Greenhouse was officially opened.
Located in the green space immediately south of the Regional Children's Centre playground equipment abutting the chain link fence backing onto the Dr. Y. Emara Centre for Healthy Aging and Mobility, the 20' by 40' structure will provide a therapeutic environment for special events, plant and vegetable growing and other project opportunities for the youth of our various programs.
The Children's Greenhouse has been made possible as a result of a very generous $150,000 donation from the Rotary Club of Windsor-St. Clair.
"There is a level of self-confidence that comes when you can produce something," explains Renee Gilliam, Operations Manager of Outpatient Treatment Services at our Regional Children's Centre. "The fact that the children can produce something they can eat or see or take home to enjoy brings a real sense of accomplishment."
Thank you Rotary Club of Windsor-St. Cliar and Amico Affiliates for your integral role in making this project grow into something beautiful.
