Brander Gardens ROCKS (Reaching Out To Community Kids) is a growing, Edmonton-based collaborative, committed to creating a neighborhood where diversity is celebrated, neighbors know one another, and all kids and families flourish. The organization’s primary target is a large, government-subsidized housing project in the Riverbend area of Edmonton.

A variety of initiatives will benefit from the $10,000 in funding awarded to Brander Gardens ROCKS through the MusiCounts TD Community Music Grant. These initiatives include a neighborhood choir, one-on-one musical training on a variety of instruments, group guitar lessons, a community band, and overall preparation for participation in the Terwillegar Riverbend Advisory Council’s annual youth talent show, which takes place in April.

Congratulations to Brander Gardens ROCKS!
