Community Garden History

In 2017, the SCA had a mission to "green up" and further beautify our community. A group of dedicated and talented volunteers worked tirelessly to build the garden from scratch. Since then, we have 21 raised garden beds for individuals and families from Sherwood to rent. This has allowed residents to grow food and build relationships with our neighbors! Furthermore, this has also provided an opportunity for our Sherwood residents living in apartments or condos to take part in gardening!

Storm Ponds – Reminder to Stay off the Ice

Storm ponds are not intended for recreational use. The water in storm ponds is constantly flowing with fluctuating water levels and contains pollutants. For the health and safety of the public several activities are prohibited, including swimming, skating, boating, fishing and fish stocking.

Storm Ponds are natural looking man-made facilities designed to collect runoff following either a rainfall or snowmelt event.
Besides helping to mitigate local flooding, the 200 plus ponds that The City currently operates and maintains, improves the quality of water that eventually reaches the rivers.

Storm ponds or wet ponds collect water and run-off from the storm water system, trapping sediment and pollutants such as oils and chemicals from driveways and roadways, fertilizer, pesticides, and sediments and debris from roads and underdeveloped areas, helping return cleaner water to rivers and streams. These ponds are a vital part of Calgary’s storm water system.

How Can You Help Address the Social Isolation of Seniors in our Community?

The social isolation of seniors is a significant issue in Canada and has been identified as a national priority. For seniors, it is often difficult to live in isolation, and more importantly, it present significant health challenges for many. Isolation has become a significantly prevalent health concern.

The Calgary Chinese Community Service Association (CCCSA) and the Alberta Ministry of Seniors and Housing have come together to address senior isolation. They seeking YOUR input on how the quality of community life for seniors in the area can be improved.

To inform these actions, we ask that Sherwood residents complete an online survey. By doing so, you will be helping organizations in your community to better understand local area seniors and bring about social innovation that benefits the whole community.
