Mission and Vision Statements

The Inglewood Community Garden Mission Statement

To provide an organic garden to cultivate plants, build community and share our resources.

The Inglewood Community Garden Vision Statement

We will be widely recognized as a vibrant, welcoming, all-inclusive society. We will engage the community through gardening to create a sense of harmony, pride and ownership. We will be financially, organizationally and environmentally sustainable.

The Mission and Vision statements have been adopted verbatim from the Garden Path Society of Calgary.

The Inglewood Community Garden and Covid-19

With regard to the next Gardening Season — the Inglewood Community Garden may extend its liability provisions by requiring everyone requesting entry to the Garden to complete and submit a Covid-19 Access Request Form before being granted access to the Garden.

Due to the uncertainties involved around Covid-19 we will be finalizing any additional health related requirements closer to the opening of the Garden and will be communicating them to returning gardeners and new gardener applicants by email as well as posting them to our website and social media platforms.
