Who We Are

Welcome to the Community Gardens page of the Calgary Horticultural Society. Did you know this program has been in place for fifteen years? Indeed the Soceity has worked hard to

strengthen and promote community gardening in Calgary by creating a network of resources, expertise and collaborative connections to provide start-up assistance for new gardens and ongoing support for established gardens. When we started 15 years ago, there were less than 11 groups considering gardening; now there are more than 164 community gardens on public and private land.

We have been busy lately doing strategic planning and have rebuilt our team. Community Gardens is currently funded and supported by The City of Calgary Park Department, RBC Blue Water Grant and TD Friends of the Environment and donations from the community. Watch us. Join us. There is so much going on in gardening in Calgary. it is so exciting.
