Jasper community garden

I've been very impressed with the growth of community gardens in Edmonton but was floored to see one on our recent trip to Jasper.

This garden is located along the railway tracks just NE of the train station. I don't recall it being there last year.

There was quite a hippy feel to to, with nicely painted chairs and a few flower bed interspersed with very healthy vegetable plots. And the backdrop was breath-taking.

Up next: After a week away there are some surprises in the garden, including a fair number of cucumbers and a few small squash among the crn plants. I also think the corn is ready to harvest (at least some of the cobs).
