Planning is well underway for a community garden at the Southwood Library. Calgary Public Library is excited to embark on this project with the Common Ground Garden Society (CGGS), a newly formed Not-for-Profit Organization. Drawn from interested community members, CGGS is actively working to establish and manage the garden.
Currently, garden teams are busy with Design & Layout, Financials and Membership. The initial design includes individual plots, a gathering place and a composting system. Site development is scheduled to take place in May with planting to begin in June!
As this is a truly organic process, there is room for the growth of ideas as well as carrots, a place to sit and ponder or read, an opportunity to learn, to care and to share with one and all.
