BASF names winners of Growing Home initiative

June 13, 2023  By Top Crop Manager

The public votes are in and winners of Growing Home with BASF — a new rural community enrichment initiative from BASF Canada Agricultural Solutions (BASF) in 2023 — have been determined. BASF received 412 nominations in April and then asked the public to vote for the winning organizations from 15 finalists — five each in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

The winning organizations are as follows:

  • Rosalind Recreation Association – Rosalind, Alta. The Rosalind Recreation Association supports the community of Rosalind, including the school athletic program and extracurricular activities, executing projects to add or improve recreation offerings in the village.
  • Davidson Child Care Inc. – Davidson, Sask. Davidson Child Care Inc. is a non-profit organization providing a safe and nurturing environment for children in the Davidson community.
  • Forrest Special Projects Group – Forrest, Man. The Forrest Special Projects Group is a charitable organization formed in 1989 by local parents to create a healthier community through the construction of local recreational facilities.

Growing Home with BASF was launched this April to give back to the areas where BASF customers live, work and play and to support the rural communities that are the heartbeat of Western Canada. BASF’s $25,000 contribution to each of the winning organizations will help fund initiatives that promote healthy and prosperous communities.


“During the two-week voting period, we received an astounding 37,661 votes cumulatively. That number is a real testament to the strength of our rural communities here in Western Canada,” says Andrea McConnell, manager of customer solutions at BASF. “Our team was inspired watching community members show up and rally support for the finalist organizations.”
