The Edmonton Social Planning Council is hosting a Lunch & Learn: Community Gardens: Growing Food & Building Community with our volunteers Cynthia Zutter & Jennifer Rees.

This event will be held at noon, on Wednesday, October 4, at the Green & Gold Community Garden.

Admission is free. All welcome. Come out to hear more about the Garden & see it in its Fall glory.

Community gardens have a number of positive impacts, which include increasing access to fresh fruits and vegetables, improved physical and mental health for gardeners, and helps facilitate social connections that build a sense of community and belonging. For this Lunch & Learn event, we will learn about the work of the Green & Gold Community Garden, which has been operating at the University of Alberta’s South Campus since 2009. We will learn more about its history, mandate, and ways in which it is building a strong community in Edmonton as well as empowering economically marginalized women in Rwanda through its partnership with the Tubahumurize Association.
