Our community garden sits beside Riley Park just outside of downtown Calgary, in the vibrant Hillhurst-Sunnyside area. If you have previously belonged to a city run community garden you may find that our structure and philosophy are a little different for several reasons.
The land we are using does not belong to the city and we get no funding from the city. It is part of St. Barnabas Church and as such actually belongs to the Anglican diocese of Calgary. Parishioners of St. Barnabas have lent it to us so we can run a community garden. Initially a large donation was offered to set up a garden as the parishioners felt it was better use of the land to share it with the community than to have water-wasteful lawns
Membership is open to everyone, whether you are new to gardening or a veteran gardener. If you are interested in joining us, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
