The community garden at the Southwood Library started in 2012 and has had many successful  subsequent seasons. Calgary Public Library is excited to embark on this project with the Common Ground Garden Society (CGGS), a  Not-for-Profit Organization. Drawn from interested community members, CGGS is actively working to establish and manage the garden.

This venture would not be possible without the generous donations of time and funds from Encana, the City of Calgary, the Calgary Garden Resource Network and countless community volunteers.

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.
