Visit to Alberta - Guerilla Gardeners live here too

This week I was in Edmonton and Calgary for work and I was able to get in touch with the Guerilla Gardening coordinators from both cities.
Seems like there is a fairly strong GG community within both cities and I was super excited to hear that the Calgary group was planting one of the nights I was going to be in town. They plant at night so I was supposed to meet them at 8:30pm at one of the C-train stops.
Unfortunately beer and good conversation with some of my co-workers got in the way of my joining the planting but it was really good to be in touch with both coordinators.

Remember, if you are travelling out of town you can always contact the GG coordinator to find out if there are any events planned while you are visiting. I found their groups on Facebook.

Also a reminder about the east end planting...

When: May 31st at 11AM

What: Between the sidewalk and the construction hoarding patches of weeds and grass will be removed, soil added, and plants planted.  

How you can help:  Be a guerrilla.  Bring plants, yard waste bags, garbage bags, trowels, shovels, garden forks, and work gloves. Water (for the plants), mulch and compost will be provided. We love it when people take photos so please bring your cameras too!
