Community Garden Celebrates the Harvest at South Health Campus
The Community Garden at South Health Campus in southeast Calgary held it’s harvest celebration last week. Expanding their garden this year with the addition 12 more planters is certainly reason to celebrate. Gardeners shared stories of the impact of the garden on their staff groups and with the retirement residence in the community. Staff engagement, caring culture and building connections with other staff and work areas were some of the commonly cited benefits of the garden. Poppy Innovations was thrilled to be part of this initiative by consulting on the development of the community garden. Planning is already underway to make next year an even bigger success.
