Sundre Community Garden

The Sundre Community Garden committee is a non-profit volunteer committee that oversees the operation of the garden and day-to-day activities. We envision a shared park-like space where users can relax and enjoy the scenery, learn from other gardeners, and spend time with local seniors.
"The most important word in community garden is not garden." Jack Hale

ABOUT
In April 2014, Greenwood Neighbourhood Place received funding for the Sundre Community Garden project from the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program ($25000) and Alberta Health Services’ Thrive for Wellness Program ($3000). A committee comprised of Sundre residents, Town of Sundre representatives, Alberta Health Services officials, a nutritionist, a Sundre Garden Club representative, and a GNP project coordinator oversaw the project development. Unfortunately, the site selected in 2014 was unsuitable and the committee worked hard to select a new site for 2015.
 
The committee established site selection criteria which included: Proximity to seniors’ facilities, recreation, pathway systems, and schools; Adjacent residents and their subsequent approval; Lighting; Parking; Street visibility; and Water availability. Based on this criteria and a very generous offer from AHS’ Sundre Hospital Administration – we selected a small site directly north of the main entrance parking lot.
