Growing food has an incredible way of grounding us and empowering us. Physical sustenance is only one part of the picture. We love the beauty of gardening and also the sheer practicality of it.
Calgary has a long history of vegetable gardening. But it’s not necessarily an easy thing to do here. The winters are long and it’s hails in July. But we see the opportunity here. We’ve grown amazing vegetables right here in the city and you can too.
There’s a misconception that gardening is all work and no fun. But we’ve found no greater joy that stepping out of the house on a warm summer evening to harvest a bowl of fresh salad, herbs, and bite into a ripe tomato warmed by the sun. Savour the smell of herbs, the sound of bees, the feeling the warm sun on your face and soft earth under your feet.
