Produce For October 28, 2023
The weather has turned and this Saturday (October 28) will be the last garden market for the year.
Our elderberry syrup is still available. Thanks to Mojo Jojo Pickles our elderberries have been processed into a nutrient rich syrup (in larger bottles than last year’s syrup, $15 per bottle).
Bulk sales of potatoes and carrots will be available on Saturday, and we still have loads of beautiful garlic.
Garden blog: Please see our latest blog entry, by Garden volunteer, Margaret Milner, on season’s end at the Garden and on learning to improve soil through no-dig, regenerative practices.
Handicrafts: We’ll be selling the handicrafts from the women of Tubahumurize at the Just One World show, on Saturday, November 18, from 9:30am – 4pm, at the Old Strathcona Performing Arts Centre (8426 Gateway Boulevard) www.justoneworldmarket.com. The market will feature international art and handicrafts, food, and live entertainment (entry by donation).
Market hours this week are:
Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
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. A whiteboard with produce prices will be on display for customers.
We want to make everyone feel welcome and safe at the garden, so please feel free to wear a mask if you want to. Hand sanitizer will also be available.
Location: 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’ll see us just across the road from the old barn. On transit – we’re about a 15-minute walk from the South Campus LRT station. A map and further directions to the garden are available at: www.greengoldgarden.com/visit.
See you at the Garden!
