The conservatory will host a weekly Adult Tranquility Hour on Thursdays from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Then, weekly on Fridays, the conservatory will open early to host a Bring Your Lunch gathering from noon to 1 p.m.
“Our new Tranquility Hour is a time where the conservatory is free from events and other distractions. It’s adult-only time to relax, breathe, and unwind in Regina’s only indoor tropical garden. You will feel calmer the moment you walk in the door. On Fridays, we welcome folks to bring their lunch and friends and take in the display,” says Herring.
The conservatory along with its initiatives is free to attend but donations are encouraged since it’s run entirely by a volunteer staff.
The conservatory is always looking for new volunteers to help tend to the gardens. If you’re interested, you can register and find more information on its website. A $25 yearly membership fee is required.
On top of kicking off a new season and new initiatives, the RGA is returning to the blueprint table for a new Floral Conservatory in Wascana Centre. The work for the new building was put on hold during the pandemic.
“There’s not much life left in our current facility and our programs continue to be in high demand. The Wascana Centre Master Plan has had a space reserved for a new Floral Conservatory for several years. We’re excited to continue that work to make that a reality,” says Paul.
The Regina Floral Conservatory is operated by volunteers of the Regina Garden Associates (RGA). Volunteer at the Conservatory by becoming a member of the RGA. There are many roles for you to get involved and volunteer your time!
Your purchase of a membership provides essential financial support for the ongoing maintenance of the Regina Floral Conservatory and our dream to build a new conservatory in Wascana Centre. We are always excited to welcome new members!Join
