In this pilot year for the Community Gardens Project the Riding Mountain Biosphere Reserve (RMBR) is working in conjunction with the Erickson, Sandy Lake, Onanole and area Service to Seniors to establish a senior friendly garden area.   The garden has been created on an underutilized lot adjacent to the RMBR office in Erickson. This will put the yard site to great use to help provide residents in our communities with fresh nutritious produce and to bring seniors together in an outdoor activity that is helping to build a strong and vibrant community. The long term goal of this  project will be to establish senior friendly community gardens throughout all the communities of the RMBR.
