to our sponsors and volunteers and participants
This year we combined the Fall Plant Share and
the Garlic Exchange and boy was it a party. We
also socialized over special grlic inspired treats prepared by the
Southern Alberta Institute of Technology SAIT Culinary Arts
students and chefs.
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.
Thanks to our sponsors: TD Friends ds of the Environment,

Calgary, Inglewood Community Gardens, Sysco Foods, Community
Natural Foods and Bistro Rouge.
