Project Description

The Sundre Community Garden committee is a non-profit volunteer committee operating under the umbrella of Greenwood Neighbourhood Place. The committee members oversee 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.”

History

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. The Sundre Community Garden is located on the Sundre Hospital grounds just west of the main entrance. It is a fenced in area comprised of 28 plots of equal size. Detailed information can be found in our Responsibilities & Guidelines for participants.
