The two gardens, located in High River’s southwest neighbourhood of McLaughlin Meadows, near the Town Farm, and in the green space at the south end of Riverside Drive NW, are the outcome of months of meetings, research, site visits, and public consultation by the Town’s Ad Hoc Community Garden Committee, in conjunction with Town parks planning staff.
While generous funding from the TD Bank’s Friends of the Environment Foundation (TDFEF) and the High River Disaster Relief Fund were instrumental in making this project a reality, the donation of some materials and volunteer labour also helped to make the funding go further, and truly create a hands-on community project.
Governance of both gardens will be done under an agreement between the Town of High River and the newly created High River Garden Society. The gardens will be operated by the Society.
While the plots are fully subscribed at this point, for those wishing to inquire about adding their name to a waiting list, or for general information regarding the two new community gardens, please contact Lynda Toffelmire, President of the High River Garden Society, at email@example.com
