Environmental Stewardship in Winnipeg and Beyond

We are establishing a strong presence in Winnipeg; a people keen to grow the mission of seeing people and places flourish. A Rocha’s work in Winnipeg and the surrounding area will focus on conservation science, environmental education and sustainable agriculture.  Combining practical action and education, we are bringing hope through Christian stewardship of both people and places.

Environmental and Retreat Centre

Near East Braintree, located on the edge of the boreal forest, we are launching an environmental and retreat centre; a living lab composed of 220 acres of forests, meadow and river valley. This beautiful place offers a unique combination of sensitive, yet accessible wildlife habitat that makes it more than a showpiece and is a critical part of connecting people to place. Here future students, interns, guests and volunteers from around the world will be immersed in compassionate, Christian engagement with creation.
