    • White River Community Garden
      This group is dedicated to the White River Community Garden Project, an initiative of Rural Change Maker Danielle Stewart. "This community garden project will teach our youth the importance of self sustenance and get our elderly engaged in a rewarding outdoor activity. Our local grocery store struggles to provide us with fresh healthy vegetables and fruit. Unfortunately our community is considered “the end of the line” so we are provided whatever is left over on delivery trucks. The garden is a symbol of hope to teach others how to grow their own food year round, as well as provide locals with that fresh from the ground alternative."

    • Young Rural Resilient
      The Young Rural Resilient Project is a movement to gain a deeper understanding of where rural youth are at since the Pandemic. The past few years have been difficult for many young people, but especially so for rural youth. We have learned much from our Rural Change Makers and discovered the needs of our young people have been profoundly impacted by the Pandemic, particularly youth in rural and remote regions, Indigenous youth and youth with barriers who face uniquely different experiences, opportunities and challenges. This project aims to help us understand what matters to you and the rural Ontario community you call home. How you and your community have changed, are impacted by recent events and what you need to build belonging, inclusion, understanding, change and opportunity in your communities. This project is a movement where we begin to rise from where we have come from to where we envision our future stories and becoming the change we want to see! How to get involved: Join ROI Connect and the Young Rural Resilient Project! Take the Young Rural Resilient Survey Challenge for a chance to win!
