How to Submit my Event:

When we review events, it helps to know what criteria we’re accepting events under. We review events based on the following criteria:
- Is the event relevant to gardening?
- Does the event contribute to community building?
- Does the event provide valuable information, knowledge, or experience to be gained?
- Do we already have events posted that are too similar? If we have too many events similar to the one you’ve submitted, we may not be able to post it.
- Can we somehow verify the legitimacy of your event, and the validity of the event host, and event location? (ensuring that we are promoting a real event that is likely to happen)
- Is it free or paid? We want to have a balanced ratio of free and paid events on the calendar.
- Free events take first priority
- Paid events that have high capacity and are widely recognized as an industry standard (like the Edmonton Home and Garden Show, for example) – are prioritized second.
- All events after that are prioritized third.
Please keep the above criteria in mind, when submitting to us! Thank you!
Once event has been reviewed and accepted, we will email you notice that your event has been accepted. An Alberta Grows Team Member will then ensure the posting of the event on the calendar within a couple of days.
Should any changes be required to be made to your event after its submission (change in location, change in event cost, cancellation of the event) it is requested that the event organizer contact us as soon as possible, with the respective changes, so that we may update those changes into our calendar for our users.
Policy note: We will regularly be reviewing our events submission policy, and our policy is subject to change without notice. Any revised changes will be updated and posted here in this post, and any events in the submission process will be addressed individually based on the time they were submitted in relation to our policy change.
