Bridgeland garden plots to be protected?
The lots at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on 7 Street N.E. are the last of what was once a common sight — neighbourhood vegetable gardens. The city bought land in the 1920s and 1930s and allowed residents to grow vegetables on the plots. Through the years, the little gardens in Calgary all disappeared, except for the one in Bridgeland.
I (think I) saw this the other day while riding; I presumed it was a semi-recent development. I didn't know that Calgary had been doing this for so long (well, now they've obviously stopped -- "progress" and all that).
Of course, I also didn't know we had such an extensive electric street-car system (before presumably GM ripped it out to replace with busses).
