It’s harvest time!
A reminder to all gardeners that most of your produce is ready to harvest. Enjoy the bounty, and please don’t let it go to waste in your garden.
 
Please be sure to have your bed completely cleaned out no later than October 19.
 
Our sincere sincere thanks to the folks who generously volunteered to keep the water totes filled each week.  It was a tough but critical job!  We really appreciate the your time and effort on behalf of keeping all the gardeners safe!

176.5 lbs. of vegetables donated to Calgary Food Bank 

This year’s philanthropic beds yielded 176.5 lbs. of root vegetables (potatoes, carrots, and onions) for the Calgary Food Bank.  Our thanks to the
volunteers who planted and tended the beds to ensure this record-setting harvest:  the Brown Family, the Lomas Family and the Wong Family.

Garden renewals for 2021 will open to existing gardeners on Oct. 16th  

If you are not an existing gardener but are interested in renting a bed for 2021, please email communitygarden@wscr.ca and we will
put you on our communication list.
 
Click on this link and login to renew.  Please note this link is for RENEWALS ONLY!
  
Registration will open for all WSCRCA members by March 2021.  
More details will be posted here early in the New Year. 
 

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!
