About our Community Garden Project:

We currently have outdated and inaccessible garden boxes that were built for decorative purposes in 1979, when the centre was originally constructed. We wish to build 17 new garden boxes in all three courtyards, for a total of 51 garden boxes. These new boxes will be accessible to those with walkers, wheelchairs or those with other limitations. Our goal is to ensure our residents are able to garden as independently as possible, for as long as possible. Currently, there are very few community gardens that are accessible to our residents, many of whom have mobility issues. Providing on-site, accessible garden facilities is crucial to ensure food sustainability and to lower food costs amongst our residents, as well as to increase the sense of community within our centre. In addition, there is a high need for community gardens in Edmonton, with long wait lists. If we can provide boxes for community members as well, it will help ensure that more Edmontonians have access to garden space, which will help with overall food security and nutrition. Unlike most community gardens, we do not have a formal committee, meetings, contracts or fees. Tools, water, soil and seed, are supplied free of charge.
