Telus takes a day in the Garden


On May 26, a team from Telus CSD Calgary North finished the trenching, buried the irrigation pipes, prepped and began to plant the perimeter garden that will grow healthy vegetables and fruits for Simon House Recovery Centre. Located in Bowness, Simon House helps highly addicted adults and has one of the highest success rates in North America. Now, thanks to their efforts, they will have healthy produce to help in the recovery cycle.

unnamedIt was inspiring to see how excited the kids were about helping others and planting these seeds. We hear that some kids plan to come back and water their seeds on June 11th
when the PCA has a tree planting event.

Last year, the Telus team built the planter boxes. This year, we trenched-in the irrigation lines and worked on the food gardens…it’s wonderful to think that one day we may see the kids who attended come back and show their own kids the trees they helped to plant!

unnamed-2A special thanks from Audrey and the Parkdale Community Association. They wish they could personally thank everyone who attended. They hope you will consider joining them on Saturday June 11th when they will be planting fruit trees and berry bushes.
