Bethania’s old well had collapsed and was not functioning for the past several years. The well was connected to an irrigation system that helped water the gardens and was also used to fill the pond. Getting the well up and running was the first and crucial step of the project, as nothing else could be accomplished without the well in place. Friesen drilling was able to drill and install the new well for the irrigation system to be run off of, and from which the new pond could be filled. Having our own private water supply for watering our grounds, gardens, and filling the pond will greatly benefit our budget’s bottom line!
Bethania Mennonite Personal Care Home would like to express our gratitude to Mr. Gerry Kuik and the Resident Planning Committee for the foresightedness of their ambitious
“Well & Fish Pond Project” and a heartfelt “Thank you!” to the many donors; Residents, Families and Community Supporters who made this dream a reality.
Grant helps garden club bring green thumbs to Bethania
On Sept. 26, Evana Popovich used the money from a federal
#risingyouth community service grant to bring students in the
Mennonite Brethren Collegiate Institute’s garden club to Bethania
Mennonite Personal Care Home.
Students were paired up with a resident, and they spent the
afternoon creating and decorating a rose bowl for a succulent and
then planted it together. Grant helps garden club bring green thumbs to Bethania
