The Garden @ Garden View Lodge

A Project Sponsored by: New Horizon’s for Seniors & the Lethbridge Healthy Communities Committee

With summer months right around the corner, the Lethbridge Healthy Communities Committee, in association with Garden View Lodge (by the Lethbridge Community Health office) and New Horizon’s for Senior’s, is looking for volunteers to help with the Garden @ Garden View Lodge. We have planted a large vegetable garden along with raspberry/Saskatoon/blackberry bushes, apple & black walnut trees. The project includes a raised box herb and strawberry garden behind Garden View Lodge.; see below for a list of what has been planted.
New Horizons would like to see seniors from the community, children and regional health staff and other organizations involved with this project.
If you are interested in helping to plant or weed the garden during the coming months, please contact Heather @ 403-388-6653 or
