    Bucket Gardening is a special way to garden without having to plow your back yard. It involves strategies and techniques for managing the growth of plants in a limited soil space. The workshop will involve discussion about sustainable food as well as healthy eating. Each participant will make a self-watering bucket container garden. The workshop is about one and a half hours long. Discussions may also include growing sprouts and community gardening for those who are interested.

    The workshop is on Sunday, May 27 beginning at 2:00 PM. Starter Materials will be provided.

    Sign up for this workshop by visiting EventBrite and search for "bucket garden". You can also call, or text, Christine Twardzik at 780.918.0276 if you have questions or want more details.

    New Program | Meditation Classes

    Argyll will be offering a new program this summer for people who would like to learn how to meditate. It will begin with a two-hour introduction to the practice and then will be followed with a regularly scheduled group meditation on a regularly scheduled morning during the week. There will be a registration fee collected at the introductory session and the practice days will be open to anyone wishing to continue their practice over the summer with others from the program.

    Details about this program, start date, and time, are still being worked out. More information will appear here when it is finalized.

    Parent & Tot Playgroup

    Our Parent & Tot Playgroup operates out of the community hall. The group use the lounge area of the hall on the last Friday of each month from 10:00 AM – 12:00 Noon. The program is for parents/caregivers and their young children ages 0-5 to drop by and make friends with other families in Argyll as well as have fun. This is a free service for community residents and we ask you to bring your own snacks and beverages.

    The Jammers

    Jammer Group playing in the hall together

    Each week a group of musicians spend a little time together playing songs and keeping time. They meet on Thursdays in the main hall of the Argyll Community Centre. They welcome any instrument you are willing to jam with. Electric and Acoustic instruments are both welcome.

    If you want to sit-in on what they get up to each week, then contact Ken by phone and get the details for their next jam. You can come and sing, play along or just relax and enjoy the music and people. Call Ken 780.466.8127 for more information.

    Garbage Pick up

    The City of Edmonton Waste Management Branch is asking people to use the proper size of garbage container. Oversize garbage cans increase the risk of injury to waste collectors and are no longer being collected.

    Bylaw #13777 limits the size of a container to less than 100 litres.

    Dogs in the Park

    It is that time again when dog owners like to bring their four-legged kids to the park. While most of us are dog fans, not every one is. This is why the City of Edmonton has regulations concerning dogs in our parks. There are two bylaws which every dog owner needs to be aware of. Both the Animal and Licensing Bylaw and the Parkland Bylaw apply to dog owners. The following is a quote from bylaw 2202:

    Unless otherwise permitted by this bylaw no person shall allow any animal under their control, or for which they are responsible, to be on Parkland. A person may have a dog on parkland so long as the Dog is:

    1. leashed and on an Improved Trail or an Unimproved Trail;
    2. leashed and on a Boulevard;
    3. leashed and in an area governed by signage permitting dogs; or
    4. in an Off Leash Area; but only if the dog is, at all times, kept at least 10 meters from any developed playground or picnic site

    Please be respectful for all the other children and families who use the parks, while we love our pets and they are a part of our families, not everyone likes dogs, some even have allergies.
