Help Keep Our Gardens Healthy! Win Prizes!


#lovelougheedgardens is a campaign to keep our Gardens healthy so that our Gardens can keep Calgarians healthy during COVID-19. This summer our free Gardens – a unique national treasure - will face historic levels of use by Calgarians seeking the mental and physical wellness that only nature can provide. Our Beltline neighbours need our Gardens more than ever, and so we need your support more than ever.

Please do 2 things:

1. Share a photo or video of you in your favourite garden/outdoor space with the hashtag #lovelougheedgardens.
2. Make a small donation (one time, or monthly for as little as $5) between now and October so that we can serve our community through our Gardens that are now a vital service for the wellness of our Beltline community. Donate to this project through Canada Helps. Every two weeks we will award prizes for posts and donations. The more you post, the more entries you will get for prizes from our supporters like Purple Orchid Florist, Meez Cuisine (Chef Judy Wood) and Garrison Pub.

We have year-round exhibits and free events.
