Indigenous Led Permaculture Garden Fundraiser

Please support the creation of an Indigenous led, permaculture garden and meeting place at the old Klinic Building (545 Broadway) in the heart of West Broadway. Elder Audrey Logan has been educating and guiding inner city gardeners for decades, sharing her vast knowledge of traditional agricultural practices with anyone lucky enough to listen. Audrey made a list of everything she would like to see brought to this site, our organization is providing the land, HTFC Architects donated drawings, and our new neighbours the U of W Community Renewal Corporation and Bockstael Construction are donating over $15K worth of labour. We have fund raised half of the proposed budget but we need your help to make this free public space as meaningful and powerful as Audrey envisioned. This garden will be a permanent, visible, celebrated feature of our community, at the corner of Broadway and Colony on Treaty One land!

Join us tonight – June 5, 2020

There will be rally happening tonight (Friday, June 5) at the Manitoba Legislature in support of Black Lives Matter. West Broadway Community Organization stands in solidarity with those calling for an end to police brutality due to systemic racism against black and Indigenous people. We believe that change is not only possible but urgently necessary, and we hope that events like tonight will bring Winnipeggers together toward a more equitable shared future.

Free and low-cost counselling and mental health support during the COVID-19 pandemic

Are you having challenges with mental health or with dealing with all the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic? If so, you are not alone!

There are a number of free and low-cost resources that are available to people in Winnipeg during the COVID-19 pandemic. See below for a list of free and low-cost counselling and mental health supports.
