Growing Roots

Growing Roots in the Community

HPA was pleased to receive the 2015 Innovation Award from the North Hamilton Community Health Centre, in recognition of the Port’s support for the Centre’s new Learning Greenhouse. HPA contributed $60,000 to the establishment of a new greenhouse on the grounds of the North Hamilton Community Health Centre, which is being set up with the help of horticulture students from Niagara College. The new greenhouse will enable NHCHC to offer horticultural therapy programs, build community partnerships that increase neighbourhood access to fresh local food, and grow seedlings for NHCHC’s other community gardens.
