Sunalta Community Gardens & Gardeners!
Sunalta Wild Flower Garden
Our Wild Flower Garden is located on the corner of 14th Avenue and 16th Street. It is cared for by community volunteers. Many events take place here throughout the year. We have a shared compost, a little library and many plants that need love and care. This is good place to meet some new neighbours while digging in the dirt. It is also a great place to meet a friend for coffee.

Community Garden Plots
The Community Plot Garden is located at the Community Hall, 1627-10th Avenue SW. We have 20+ plots available for you to grow your own food, herbs and plants. Would you like to have a plot for 2022? Get on the waitlist.
Communal Garden Beds
Grow food with your neighbours. As of May 14th, we have planted all of the seeds in the 11 rectangle beds outside the hall. Join this group in watering, weeding, harvest and learning. Reach out if you are interested.
Our amazing friend Janet Melrose, Calgary's Cottage Gardener has guided us along the path of community garden and growing food in small spaces. She leads Sunaltans in two gardening workshop series a year. During Covid 19, we successfully offered these fun programs on line. For more information on Janet's Gardening Workshops at Sunalta, email Kelsey or phone her 403-333-7175.
Additionally, Janet has co-published six books on gardening in the Prairies. Tap in to all of her secrets/ Now you can keep her wisdom on your coffee table. Check them out here.
Keep your eye on our Facebook page for upcoming workshops on gardening, plants and good nature!
