Green & Gold Community Garden

The Green & Gold Community Garden, on the University of Alberta South Campus, is a project of the University’s Faculty of Agricultural, Life and Environmental Sciences. Volunteers manage the garden and all of their time, and most of the seeds, plants and equipment used are donated.

All are welcome to volunteer at the garden or to purchase produce at the garden markets when they open (in late June or early July).

The vegetables, herbs and flowers are all “spray-free” (no pesticides or artificial fertilizers are used). All proceeds from produce sales – that’s 100% – goes to the Tubahumurize Association.  A non-profit organization in Rwanda, it supports and empowers female victims of violence and marginalization through trauma counselling, life-skills coaching, vocational training, and micro-credit loans.

If you are interested in volunteering or attending the garden market, contact the Green & Gold Garden:
