Just a reminder about our Art “Auction”. Thanks to members of the Edmonton Urban Sketch group who kindly donated their sketches/watercolours of the Garden. Bids on the art close on September 24. If you didn’t receive the email with photos of the artwork please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can submit a bid via email or at the Saturday Garden markets. All funds raised through the auction will be sent to Tubahumurize, in Rwanda.
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.
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
