All plots have been sold!

We have reconfigured our process and our plot plans to allow for more social distancing in order to open our community gardens this year. As such, please note the following:

  • - You will be assigned a plot
  • - Users must use their own water containers. Watering hoses are not allowed. 
  • - Users should bring (and take away) their own gloves, hand sanitizer, and water jugs to protect against the spread of COVID-19
  • - Plots can only be purchased by calling the Community Services Department at 780.672.9195 and talking to staff. Leaving a message on the answering machine will not get you a plot.
  • - Payment is only by credit card, so please have it with you when you call
