This week’s recipe for carrot-leek soup with thyme is from Sarah and Eduardo who started the Green & Gold Community Garden with a small group of volunteers in 2009. Please remember to BYOB(ags). Any extra bags that you can bring us would be most appreciated. We never seem to have enough. Thank you!!

The garden market is open Tuesday, September 27, 2016 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, October 1, 2016 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Regular market hours for the remainder of the season will be Tuesday evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

For those of you who haven’t visited the Garden before, we are 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:

See you at the market! Please remember to BYOB(ags)!!
