The Green and Gold Garden is now open for its 8th season!
Come and visit us on South Campus to see our 2 acre, all volunteer run garden.
Purchase organic veggies -- over 50 varieties!--a wide selection of herbs, and flowers.
Regular market hours for the summer are:
Tuesday evenings from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Saturdays from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm
This season we will have orchard fruits for sale from our newly acquired orchard, located next to the garden.
Because we are volunteer run, ALL money raised from sales of produce at the garden goes directly to the Tubahumurize project for women in Rwanda. Their Tubahumurize Association Website describes the range of programmes it provides for the survivors of the Rwandan genocide.
The Green and Gold Garden is a prime example of "Think Globally-- Act Locally."

A neighbourhood block party is an opportunity for people to meet and get to know each other. Edmonton City Council has waived the $100 fee for Block Parties.
A permit (free) is still required from the City when a block party is held on a location where there is traffic (streets, back alleys, or cul-de-sacs). The permit is required to block off the street.
Signatures from all your neighbours in the block party zone are required on the permit to show support for the event, whether or not they plan to attend.
The permit must be submitted at least 2 weeks before the event. The permit includes pick up and delivery of road barriers. Alcohol consumption is not permitted on city roads or public property.

CITY OF EDMONTON - RESIDENTIAL INFILL
To improve the accessibility of information about the many process changes and educational tools in progress to improve infill activities, the City of Edmonton in May of 2016 launched a new infill website at cityofedmontoninfill.ca
To address the varied views and opinions on the topic, the City focused their messaging on three groups: communities, builders, and homebuyers.
The City considers it to be "a powerful tool in communicating the place infill has in Edmonton’s future".
On the website you may also sign up for the Evolving Infill Newsletter to learn about the latest infill related news and initiatives.
