THE PHILOSOPHY BEHIND THE NAME

a special meaning

The name Grotto Gardens was chosen by our family as a tribute to our son, Dean Sellinger who passed away from cancer at the age of 14. On our farm property, located in Maple Creek, Saskatchewan, we have constructed a concrete and stone grotto that contains our son's ashes. The grotto is surrounded by the flowering Saskatoon orchard and recently planted perennial gardens.
