Look what is coming up
We are combining two great events into one
This year we are combining Fall Plant Share and
the Garlic Exchange.
Plant Shares enable gardeners to meet,
share, add interest and variety to their gardens by trading or
purchasing plants for less. The Society hosts two plant shares a
year in the fall and spring.
The Garlic Exchange shares 50 heritage types of
cultivars of garlic that are fresh, Calgary-grown and
super-delicious! Over the last few years, the
community gardens program has been working with the Fort Calgary,
the Shared garden at the Inglewood and McClure community gardens,
growing heritage garlic to share and exchange.
This year we are combining Fall Plant
Share and the Garlic
Exchange, inviting the public and having a party and
a fundraiser. What is a party without food? This year socialize
over special food options prepared by the Southern Alberta
Institute of Technology SAIT Culinary Arts chefs and share
gardening knowledge with other enthusiastic gardeners!
When: Saturday Sept. 12 - 9:30 -
Where: the field west of the Calgary Horticultural
Society office located at 208 - 50 Ave. SW Calgary
