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!

Drinks and packaged snacks will be offered.

When: April 24th, join anytime from 9AM to 3PM

What to bring: Protective gloves and a garbage bag – the city provides free supplies via the TLC kit program (https://www.calgary.ca/csps/parks/volunteer/tlckits.html).

The Calgary Atlas Project

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.

justREEL FILM SERIES

Event: justREEL FILM SERIES 

Film:  Most Likely To

Where:  River Park Auditorium (3818 14a St SW, Calgary, AB T2T 3Y2)

When: Tuesday May 14th, 2019 at 7:00PM

Cost: FREE

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.
