Welcome to the Riverbend Community Garden

Potato Plants in a Backyard Garden

Welcome to the home of the Riverbend Community Garden in Calgary, AB, Canada!

We are still in the planning stages and are very tentatively hoping to break ground on a build site in spring/summer 2016. We still have lots of work to do to make that a reality, including applications to the city, fundraising, finalizing the design of the garden, planning the actual build, and more.

If you are interested in helping then we can use your support in any capacity you have to provide, including (but not limited to):

  • donations of money, materials, or equipment
  • time to help with applications and planning
  • input on the design process
  • labor to help build and maintain the garden
  • any other superpower that you may have to contribute to the cause…

Please get involved and tell us what you would like to see in the garden, or how you would like to help. We have been meeting at the Riverbend Community Association Hall on Thursday nights at 7:00 PM, roughly once a month. This schedule is subject to change pending availability of our committee members and the required schedule for the various activities we have underway. You can keep up to date about our upcoming events here or on the Public Garden in Riverbend Facebook Page.

Why do we need a garden? Gardens are proven to improve nutrition, physical activity and community ties. Know your neighbours, get some great gardening tips and eat a veggie or two. All garden paths lead to a better life.

Calgary has many beautiful and successful neighbourhood gardens already, let’s grow some community spirit together in Riverbend!
