Who We Are

The Mid-Sun Community Garden was founded in May 2009. A group of interested and enthusiastic Mid-Sun residents banded together to help build thirty 8′ x 4′ raised beds for the grassy area on the north side of the community centre.

In 2010, twenty more beds were added, as well as several perimeter fruit trees, Saskatoon bushes, and other landscaping considerations. There are now over 60 garden beds and an ever expanding, enthusiastic garden committee made up of over 20 dedicated volunteers.

Have questions? Check out our Frequently Asked Questions or email the garden committee at: midsungarden@gmail.com.

Re-Tree YYC

The Parks department is launching a new tree planting initiative targeting 25 communities each year over the next three years.  These communities where chosen based on many factors, the main ones being storm damage, open canopy space and community interest.  This will be replacing the current NeighbourWoods program.  The plan is to ‘blitz’ communities by planting trees and providing the community with education activities.

How is this different from NeighbourWoods?

This program will not be asking residents to register their property for a tree, the tree locations will be pre chosen by Urban Forestry.  If a tree location is on the back of walk of a property, that home owner will be notified a minimum of two weeks before the tree is planted.  This program will also be planting in locations where dead City trees have been removed, as well as replacing storm damaged trees.
