Warm sunshine for our Pumpkin Hunt

Our young gardeners searched for pumpkins in the garden and received stickers to decorate their pumpkins and some Hallowe’en treats.  Thanks to Blair Poyntz of Blair’s No Frills for donating the pumpkins for this event!


Happy Thanksgiving!  

Thanks to Pierre Gagnon and Kevin MacDonald who braved the snow and cold to complete the installation of our entrance sign to the garden!

Remember to renew your bed before October 31 if you want to be guaranteed the same bed for 2019.  We have almost half the beds renewed already!  Renew Now

82 lbs. of potatoes, onions and beets were harvested and donated to Calgary Food Bank from our philanthropic beds.

Thanks to Mary MacLeod, Gertie Hegholz, and Karla Gibson for digging up the harvest from the philanthropic beds! The vegetables were sorted, cleaned and donated to the Calgary Food Bank. Mary has set a goal of achieving a 100 lb. harvest next year!


 

Thanks to Karla and Matt Gibson for volunteering to label all of our tools!

 

Celebrate the Official Opening of our Community Hub & Garden on 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!  Thank you to Tim Horton’s for donating the refreshments.

We welcome the community to enjoy this beautiful space alongside the many gardeners who rent beds.

Garden Angels
If you would like to be involved in our gardening community, without renting a bed, we would appreciate some “garden angels” who would help with the planting and maintenance of our philanthropic beds.  The harvest from these beds will be donated to Calgary Food Bank and Inn From the Cold.   Please email communitygarden@wscr.ca to let us know that you can help!
