Projects & Events
IHI headquarters is located in North Milton PEI. The “Hill of Hope” is a 3-acre property and Air BnB that we have leased from our sister company Salts of the Earth. IHI has a lot of big plans for the property that we hope will benefit Islanders and their mental and emotional health in many different ways!
Here are just some of the great things we have in the works. Please take a moment to look through the following projects and let us know if you would like to get involved or make a donation.
~Current & On-Going~
Fight club was created over 2 years ago as a men’s social club by Darren Blanchard. It’s a place for men to come together in a non-judgemental and confidential setting where they can feel comfortable to let their guards down and help to break down the stigma of men speaking openly and genuinely about their feelings. This is a safe and sober setting equipped with a billiards table, dartboard, and great company.
Every Wednesday Night from 7:00pm-9:00pm

IHI will be having another community garden this year. We plan on growing lots of great vegetables, herbs, and flowers. The entire garden is run on volunteers and everyone will get to benefit from the end-of-season harvest and throughout the growing season. All surplus food grown will be donated to the community fridge and food bank.
Seed germinating and planting starts in early March. Every step to starting a bountiful garden will be covered so it’s also a fantastic learning experience for everyone involved. Sharing skills and time together to create something that benefits everyone and even others in need within the community. Our long-term goal for our gardens is to build a geothermal in-ground greenhouse that will allow us to garden and provide fresh food all year round!
If you would like to get involved in the community garden project please contact us at email@example.com or sign up on our "Get Involved" page today!
