Produce For August 10 and 14, 2021
Beans, cabbage and Evans cherries are the new additions for this week. Also, this month we’ll have the beautiful Rwandan handicrafts from Tubahumurize available at the Saturday markets.
A shout out to Sustainable Foods Edmonton, who will be holding their Community Garden Bike Tour on Sunday, August 15, from 10:00 am to 12:30 pm. This year, community gardens in Mill Woods are featured. This is a family-friendly event and lunch is included in the registration fee. For more information and how to register please click here.
The summer Garden Market hours will be:
Tuesdays from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
COVID Protocols Reminder: The pandemic has been difficult for all of us. The Green & Gold Community Garden is following current public health guidelines. For the safety of our volunteers and customers, we continue to encourage physical distancing and wearing masks. We want to make everyone feel welcome and safe at the garden!
Please note: There’s no custom picking by volunteers or self-serve at the kiosk again this year. Instead, we have a designated shopping area at the front of the garden. Please line up at the south end and a volunteer will help guide you through the shopping area filling a bag with the pre-picked/packaged produce you choose to buy. A cashier will be located at the north end of the shopping area.
For those of you who haven’t visited before, the Garden is located on the South Campus of the University of Alberta. Enter the University Farm off 60th Ave. Turn left at the T intersection (118th St) and you can’t miss it (we’re just across the road from the old barn). A map and further directions to the garden are available at: www.greengoldgarden.com/visit
