The Green & Gold Community garden, on the University of Alberta South Campus, is an initiative of the University’s School of Public Health and Faculty of Agricultural, Life and Environmental Sciences. Volunteers manage the garden and all of their time, and most of the seeds, plants and equipment used are donated.
All are welcome to volunteer at the garden or to come to the garden markets when they open (in late June or early July).
The vegetables, herbs and flowers are all “spray-free” (no pesticides or artificial fertilizers are used). Anyone is welcome to ‘purchase’ their vegetables at the garden market. Every penny of donations goes to the Tubahumurize Association, a non-profit organization in Rwanda that provides socially and economically marginalized women with vocational training, counselling, life-skills coaching, health care education, and opportunities for sustainable income generating activities.
If you would like to receive the garden e-mails this summer (these let you know what produce is available at the garden that week and the market hours ) please sign up to our garden listserv at:
