What the Inglewood Community Garden does – is maintain and rent 119 raised beds and 0.18 hectare [0.44 acre] of Communal Garden of which approximately 501 sq m [599 sq yds] has been planted out and is dedicated to providing produce to local community service organizations and garden volunteers.
The Garden offers gardening opportunities to all Calgarians without constraint based upon neighbourhood of residence, physical ability or financial resources.
The Garden boasts an enthusiastic volunteer cadre who, as well as being eminently practical and knowledgeable gardeners, are socially engaged and actively involved in extending the positive benefits of gardening to our community – through donation, co-operation and education.
The Inglewood Community Garden is located between Piitoayis Family and Colonel Walker Schools and the Parks Calgary greensward adjacent to the Inglewood Community Association grounds.
