East Village is booming. And blooming.

The community garden in East Village has deep roots.

It has survived several summers of construction as CMLC has sown the seeds of renewal in the neighbourhood. “The community garden grows community as much as it does flowers and vegetables,” says Clare Nolan, EV’s marketing communications manager. “It’s a wonderful gathering place.”

The garden is back for its third year at the corner of 5th Street SE and 7th Avenue SE. There are 36 plots available to EV residents, and the grand opening is scheduled for May 28. To apply for your own piece of fertile EV earth, call 403.718.0300.
