What the Inglewood Community Garden does – is maintain and rent 121 raised beds and garden 0.18 hectare [0.44 acre] of Communal Garden which is dedicated to providing produce to local community service organizations and garden volunteers.
The Garden offers gardening opportunities to all Calgarians interested in gardening.
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 co-operation, education and donation.
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.
