The Montgomery Community Garden is accepting new members for the 2017 season!
The garden members meet regularly and have organized work parties. All members contribute equally to the gardening work and share in the harvest. No gardening experience necessary, just a willingness to work and get your hands dirty!
An annual membership costs $20 (plus an MCA membership). There are a limited number of memberships available.

Starting Seeds for the Community Garden
The first seeds have been planted (indoors) and soon there will be visible activity at our community garden site as well. If you are interested in joining the garden group this year, click on the “Garden 2015” tab up above on the right. That’s the place to check all season for updates as well.
The end-of-season potluck for friends of the community garden is coming up on October 26, starting at 5:15 at the community centre. Bring a favourite dish to share. Beer and wine will be available for purchase. RSVP to Janine, at the community centre– email@example.com; 403-247-3116.
It was an especially good year in the community garden. Everything grew like crazy and there was a LOT of delicious produce to share. A rubber walkway went down, making travel within the garden easier. And it was just plain fun to be part of such a successful season.

Jasper volunteered himself to provide a sense of scale.
Have you walked or driven by the garden on 48th St. lately? It’s growing like mad! Check out mid-August photos by clicking right here.

The garden is so enticingly lush right now that urban wildlife can’t resist it. This guy (gal?) was enjoying beet tops this week, and not in any hurry to leave, even when shooed.
