The CGGS community garden was established at the Southwood Library in 2012. The Calgary Public Library (CPL) along with the Common Ground Garden Society (CGGS) worked to design and build the 50ft by 60ft garden space.

Drawn from interested community members, CGGS is a not-for-profit organization that was created to establish and manage the garden.

This venture would not have been possible without the generous donations of time and funds from Encana, the City of Calgary, and the Calgary Horticultural Society in addition to the support of the local community.
