Stone Growing House

The environment will win when people live in a CHAG home. Once people own their own homes they can grow gardens filled with vegetables, herbs and flowers. Composting can take place as well. Run down neighbourhoods will be transformed, one house at a time, until the whole area is revitalized. It is the aim of CHAG to ensure that an energy audit is conducted so that each home will be renovated to be energy efficient.
 
A group of concerned citizens formed CHAG. They believe in civic responsibility and civic investment. The Board has mobilized community members through various presentations. Ultimately, the Board wanted to establish a program that would see citizens helping themselves through a form of housing that would foster self-reliance and stability within the community. A homeowner is less likely to move, thereby creating stability within the family unit and within the community.
 
CHAG impacts the community in terms of education, health and human services, the environment and through civic investment.
