Garden Events!

Hello volunteers (and soon to be volunteers when you see how beautifully the garden is growing!)
There are some events and workshops coming up for the garden that we would like to make you aware of, some really cool stuff including Yoga in the Garden, Eat Your Whole Garden, Fall Festival, and more (see calendar attached) and info below.....

In addition to these events I would like to call out once more for volunteers.

Harvesting: We need help harvesting for charity. It is the BEST time!
On harvest days you can help gather 50lbs of Fresh Produce to donate to:
The Sheriff King Home, Salvation Army, The Alex, and Brown Bagging for Calgary Kids.
Harvest times:
Every Wednesday 5pm-dusk
Every Sunday 9:30am-2pm

email to let us know when you will be coming to help: Linda-

Autumn Garden Gnomes Needed:
No experience necessary. Great way to learn about edible plants, harvesting, planting seeds for winter crops etc.
The Garden takes extra care and preparation in the fall, ensuring an early frost doesn't damage the crops we've taken such good care of.
As well there is the focus on getting ready for a new season, saving seeds, cleaning up plants that are finished producing, composting.
We can use your help:
Every Tuesday 4pm-7pm
Every Thursday 10am-1pm
email to let us know when you will be coming to help: Linda-

We can use your help on the Pre Festival Crew
Sunday, September 7, 12-2pm and/or
Tuesday, September 9, 6-8pm
Location: Garden (or Blackfoot Diner if it is raining)

If you would like to share in this bounty, harvest shares are nearly bought up, but we may be able to squeak a few more members in.

There are
so many new foods we can experience by having access to fresh food from a local garden.
Nothing beats cutting up fresh basil for a homemade pasta, sprinkling edible flowers on a potato salad,
picking a bean off its beanstalk and popping it into your mouth. The FRESHEST OF FRESH! Many people
don't realize there are more edible foods in the garden, including some of our weeds, flowers,
and the plant stalks or leaves of some of our standard vegetables.
