Keen to learn about gardening in Alberta? Want to eat fresh produce grown using organic gardening practices? Interested in helping socioeconomically marginalized women in Africa to make better lives for themselves and their families? Please come and join us at the Green & Gold Community Garden.
Started in 2008, the Green & Gold Community Garden is on the University of Alberta’s South Campus. The garden is a collaborative project of the School of Public Health and Faculty of Agricultural, Life and Environmental Sciences. It is run by volunteers and all of the proceeds from donations for garden produce are sent to the Tubahumurize Association for women in Rwanda.
We’re always looking for more help at the garden. You don’t need to be affiliated with the university –most garden volunteers are from the neighbouring communities and we range in age from teenagers to seniors. You don’t need to be an experienced gardener either. Both novice and experienced gardeners are welcome. If you don’t like gardening, but would still like to help in other ways (promoting the garden, donating seeds or garden tools) please contact us at:
Or, if you don’t want to garden, but would like to receive the garden e-mails this summer (to let you know what produce is available during the garden market hours that week ) please sign up to our garden listserv at:
