LETHBRIDGE, AB – A local charity has opened up a new green space.

On Thursday, May 30, 2024, the Martha Retreat Centre held the grand opening of their new Contemplative Food Garden outside of their building.

The garden has been under construction over the past year, and it was officially opened with a blessing and an event, which included Lethbridge mayor Blaine Hyggen planting tomatoes.

Diana Sim, Executive Director of the centre says that there has been a lot of support from over 150 volunteers and many donators to help get the garden up and running.
