Interested in beautifying Grovenor or your community? Looking forward to the spring, it is worth checking out the initiatives in our city to make it beautiful.

Let’s connect where we have shared interests – gardening or murals, anyone?
The traditional name for Edmonton is Amiskwaciy Waskahikan, which means “Beaver Hills House”. The City of Edmonton has many excellent Indigenous learning opportunities and experiences.
