Hello Fellow Gardeners,
Here we are again, approaching the best time of the year. With the whole of spring and summer just ahead, are you dreaming of fresh-picked carrots and early spring radishes? Have you been drawn to the tomato seedlings and basil plants proliferating at the pop-up gardening sections of Home Depot and Walmart? Do you yearn to get your hands on a shovel? Then you are one of us, and we welcome you. Your bed is waiting at the community garden.
We have a small number of beds available for new members this year, and we invite you to claim yours now. All gardeners join one of six teams dedicated to keeping our corner of the community looking healthy and happy, so you will have an opportunity to meet other community members, learn from more seasoned gardeners, and be a part of one of Calgary’s most beautiful garden projects.
We currently have both standard and special access beds available. The annual cost of a regular bed is $50 and the smaller accessible bed fee is $25. We also rely on our gardeners to contribute a block of their time to the garden over the course of each summer. Each of us contributes a minimum of six hours working with our fellow gardeners to water and nurture the perimeter plantings, manage the compost system, and maintain the permanent structures in the garden. To reserve a bed, all gardeners must hold a current WHM Community Association membership. Membership details can be found here.
The opportunity to reserve a place in the garden for 2021 closes April 15th, but we expect to fill up quickly, so please sign up today! A $20 deposit is required to reserve your bed with the balance of $30 due April 30th.
For more detailed information regarding the community garden and membership, please view the Community Garden page on the community website.
We look forward to meeting you!

The Atlas Project is an initiative of the Calgary Institute for the Humanities (CIH) at the University of Calgary and is steered by a group of five professors at the University of Calgary: George Colpitts (History), Jim Ellis (English; CIH), Nancy Janovicek (History), Graham Livesey (School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape), and Charles Tepperman (Communications, Media and Film).
The Calgary Atlas Project will produce a series of maps that document lesser-known histories of the city, exploring the city’s diversity in creative and accessible ways. Each map will address a particular community or a significant feature of the city’s history.
The map’s texts are written by local historians, drawing on available archives, and the maps are created by Calgary artists, ideally, artists who have a relation to the history they are interpreting.

Each year the Marda Loop Justice Film Festival strives to present innovative and meaningful documentaries that encourage Calgarians to take positive action in their communities, this nation, and the world. The film featured in May is a Calgary Police Service (CPS) production.
Synopsis: Children are not born criminals. And one city is making sure of that.
Most Likely To… A look at the Calgary Police Service’s approach to youth at-risk crime prevention through intervention, education and most importantly, human connection. Disruptive. Defiant. Dangerous. Everyone remembers that one kid in their class unanimously voted “most likely to end up behind bars’. If we know that kids need help then why aren’t we helping them? Most Likely To… follows the lives of Kevin and Timmy, 8 and 18, over the course of a year as they fight for a better life that they were born into. With the help of one of the most progressive police services in Canada, Kevin and Timmy realize that their future doesn’t have to be decided by their past.

We will need 4 volunteers for 1-2 hours. please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are able to assist.
The community of Winston Heights-Mountview would like to extend our thanks to the young mission team from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This team came out shovel and pickax in hand (3 times) and helped our community by weeding much of our Centennial garden. It was so amazing to have their patience, strength, giving spirit and to hear their laughter as they shared stories and history. Thank you. Our community appreciates your help.
Here are a few pictures from the day.

Our community hall, with it’s adjoining gardens and playground are the heart of our community and bring our families together to play and learn. The centennial garden is the beautiful flower garden in front of our community hall and we are recruiting for our Centennial Garden Care Team. This garden was designed and developed on the 100th anniversary of our community and is maintained by community volunteers. Over the years there have been a few changes to improve the space and to lighten the workload. We now have an installed sprinkler system and that has helped our plants to survive and thrive.
This season we were impacted by the COVID-19 measures and were not able to clean up and weed the garden as we normally do. There was a point where the dandelions outnumbered the plants and shrubs. In the past month, we have been able to get out to clean up and it shows. Quite a bit of the garden has been weeded thanks to a few volunteers who have stepped forward to join the care team. We have also been gifted a few flowers for our plant pots. We cannot say thank you enough to each and every one of you!! We need additional care team volunteers to help make this garden an ongoing success.
Next steps; we are organizing an adopt a garden section program. We need volunteers who can adopt a small piece of the garden to keep it weed-free. By breaking the garden into smaller sections it will not be so overwhelming as you only have to focus on your area and you can count on your team members to do the same for theirs. Each section would be about 7 feet by 3 feet (that’s about the size of one of the garden beds in our community garden). You can take on a section yourself or together with a friend. If you are looking for a smaller section, don’t hesitate, we welcome all helping hands.
Think of the section to be adopted as from one rock and another, from a rock to a tree, from rock to sidewalk…no matter how small we welcome you.
If interested please contact Marcia at email@example.com
See you in the garden.
