Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Sioux Falls, SD

Total Budget: $2,000

Areas of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment, Community economic development, The environment

Activity Type: Community Development: Volunteer Services

Summary: Sioux Falls Rotary South would support this project in assisting in initial design, ground prep, and planting of the area. Option for ongoing volunteer opportunities to weed pull and plant annual pollinators.

The mission of Avera is to make a positive impact on the lives and health of persons and communities by providing quality services guided by Christian values.

Establish a meditation/reflection garden within or near the existing St. Francis Community Garden on the Avera On Louise Health Campus. The community garden is located within close proximity and is accessible to residents of the Avera Addiction Care Center. Plants within the garden would primarily be perennial pollinator plants that are native or grow well in the area.

Project could begin in the Fall of 2021 for the planning and initial planting efforts, with project completion planned for Spring 2022. On-going involvement from the club for regular garden care projects.
