The Parkallen Community Garden has a new leader: Christine Watts. All ages and abilities are welcome to meet and garden with Christine at directed gardening bees on Saturdays, 2-4 p.m. and on Wednesday Evenings, 7-8 p.m.
As always, visitors are welcome anytime and self-directed gardening is encouraged. Pull some weeds, plant (and label) something, harvest a handful of something to munch on the spot or for your dinner. See what’s coming up.
Looks for the cheery bulbs planted by the Brownies in 2015 and 2016. We’re still growing in 2017.
Marlene Wurfel attended the 2015 Edmonton Federation of Community League’s Showcase Gala this summer to accept a spotlight award on behalf of the Parkallen Community Garden and the Parkallen Community League.
The all-ages gardening projects at the Parkallen Community Garden were 1 of 5 outstanding projects showcased by the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues at their gala. The showcase included a story by CTV News’ Dez Melenka.
