Grow together, learn from each other and build a sense of community
The Town of Blackfalds provides the opportunity for community members to come together to grow healthy foods, beautiful flora, meet new people and enjoy the outdoors throughout the growing season. Gardeners have two locations to choose from - one off Aspen Drive and one at Pine Crescent Park.
Please see Garden Plot Diagrams with locations and Requirements and Expectations in the documents section below.
Gardens will be ready for use starting the Friday of May Long weekend until the Tuesday after Thanksgiving weekend.
