Community Hub & Garden

Celebrate the Official Opening of our Community Hub & Garden
Saturday, September 8 at 9:45 a.m.

Join us on the patios for our Official Opening.  It’s been a wonderful first growing season!  Vegetables are ready for harvest. Our volunteer teams have been keeping the site and sheds looking tidy all season. Nine benches will be installed in the coming weeks. It’s time to celebrate! The speeches will begin at 10 a.m. and we promise to keep it short. There will be refreshments and time to socialize. Hope to see you there!

Our gardeners gathered for an information session.

Saturday, April 28 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
St. Michael Catholic Community, 800 85 St. SW,  Room 134/136

This was an opportunity for you to meet your fellow gardeners, hear more about completion of the garden, accessibility, watering, etc. and ask any questions that you may have or share any ideas for the garden.

If you were unable to attend and have not yet done so, please send an e-mail to communitygarden@wscr.ca indicating which week’s volunteer team  you are available to join for “chores”.   Thanks to those who have already signed up!
