May 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm MDT

The ‘Rodfather’ discusses developments in the past few years towards sustainable local food systems and how we can all contribute

The Grow (Garden-Based Renewal Of Wellness) Project is a Horticultural Therapy program hosted by Unitarians Calgary, with a mandate to sustain and improve the health and wellness of participants through purposeful gardening projects at Unitarian Calgary.

Part of our mandate is to develop an ecologically sound & sustainable gardenscape at Unitarians Calgary, but also to provide educational opportunities for all to learn. We are delighted to be able to offer this 6 part series of talks in 2021!

In this our 6th talk, we welcome Rod Olson, the ‘Rodfather’, from leaf and Lyre to share some insights into developments in the past few years towards sustainable local food systems and how we can all contribute in the work .

Rod is one of the original Urban Farmers in Calgary and is a founding member of YYC Growers. Rod has his finger on the pulse of our local food system, whether he is SPIN farming, working with the YYC Growers co-operative or assisting new Canadians to grow food!

This talk is Sponsored by a grant from TD Friends of the Environment!
