A place for people of all ages, stages and abilities.
There are so many things, that our garden team is excited about pertaining to this project, but one of the most exciting parts, is the idea of involving children in the project.
Isn’t that what it’s all about? “Give a man a fish, and you’ll feed him for a day, teach a man to fish…” you get the idea right?
Schools, clubs, dayhomes, teens, toddlers, all kids, all shapes, sizes and abilities.
When kids grow fresh, healthy foods, kids will eat fresh healthy foods.
Watch them pull a carrot out of the ground, wipe the dirt off on their pants, and munch away. Raspberry stained hands, pea shells all over the ground. It doesn’t get much better people.
Oh,the thought of it gives me goose bumps.
Planting seeds for change
Is this great or what? We had an idea, we presented the idea to the right people, and POOF, we’re creating a community garden! Thank you first to the LCA, for embracing this idea and being facilitators for the space. Thank you to Rockyview County, for your valuable resources, experience and expertice, we are so thrilled to partner with you! A big THANK YOU to Communities ChooseWell through Alberta Parks and Recreation. Without this grant to get us on our feet, we don’t know how we would get up and running.
So, enought of that! What YOU want to know is, “where are you in this process?”
We have a group of approximately 10 dedicated volunteers, ready to start working their magic, engendering support and sponsorship for this project in our community. We’re getting the word out, talking to the community, attending town hall meetings, handing out brochures (check it out under publications), talking to businesses and making a site plan so that anyone and everyone knows how they can be involved, what the community garden would mean for its citizens and the people it will serve.
We’re pricing out the project, cost of plots, children’s area and garden, teen gardens, mulch, soil, water, power, parking….the whole enchillada.
So when you see our pretty pamphlets, grab one, read up on the project, and come and join the team!!
