Community Garden

 

Prince Albert, Sk. – The City of Prince Albert is inviting clubs, organizations and associations to complete an “Expression of Interest” to operate the Community Garden, located off 15th Avenue East beside Ecole Holy Cross for the 2019 growing season. This is intended for non-profit organizations and cooperatives wanting to enhance existing or establish new programs, support education, establish community connections and build capacity at the Community Garden. The successful proponent will enter into a Lease and Operating Agreement with the City of Prince Albert.

The successful proponent will establish an annual budget and be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Community Garden and all operating and maintenance costs.

Expression of Interest packages are now available at www.citypa.ca under the Tenders section. The closing date for the EOI is Thursday, February 28th at 2:30 PM. Pending City Council approval and successful negotiation of a Lease and Operating Agreement, the transfer of operation would occur by May 1st, 2019.
