Update: Peace Garden Park Vandalism

We’re happy to see Peace Garden Park operating amongst other community gardens in Edmonton during these extraordinary times.

The City of Edmonton has instituted various guidelines to ensure gardeners’ safety, including requirements to only allow them to use gardening spaces.

Community gardens will be permitted to continue operations if adequate safety measures and scheduling are in place to ensure that physical distancing is maintained. The safety measures are available here.

Unfortunately, physical distancing guidelines signs were vandalized this week, and the tape marking off benches and picnic tables on the site was torn down.
We ask you for patience and understanding in adhering to guidelines. Our goal is to keep the volunteer-run Peace Garden Park open to provide you with the opportunity to grow food within our neighbourhood. 

Thank you for your support!
