Services: Calgary River Valleys is a non-profit watershed stewardship group. We were formed in 1991 to provide independent input to policy & large planning proposals in Calgary, especially where these proposals impact our rivers, creeks, and wetlands. We consider ourselves "the voice of our rivers." In addition to the planning input, we work on a few major projects each year, including the annual Brown Trout Redd (spawning nest) Count in the Elbow River in Calgary, and in 2018 we began an annual "Riverbank Makeover" riparian restoration project. For this Riverbank Makeover project, we worked with a different selected homeowner in 2018 and 2019 to re-plant their riparian area (the river-adjacent land) to improve its ecological function. For this project we replaced the non-native short grass with native riparian plants, provided education to river-adjacent homeowners regarding best practices for caring for the riparian area, and monitored the success of the re-planted bank over time. We plan to restore a riparian area on public land in the West Nose Creek valley in 2020. We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities to participate in these projects and in providing input to the planning process in Calgary.

Services: YYC Growers participates in the food system in game-changing ways to impact the health of consumers, as well as the health of the earth and her soil. The YYC cooperative prides itself in being not just sustainable but even more importantly, regenerative. Regenerative farming is a dynamic state-of-being. A regenerative farmer is guided by this question, “Is my soil better this season than last?” The key impacts of asking this question are that the soil’s produce is more nutritious and flavourful, and Mother Earth gets taken care of. A VITAL ECOSYSTEM. The agro-ecological position taken by the cooperative means that land is valued as the foundation to a vital ecosystem, the land has a voice at the table. Farmers become stewards and builders of this ecosystem, helping to create conditions to grow good food. Healthy soil is pest- and weed-resistant soil. REGENERATIVE AGRICULTURE. Our member farmers practice regenerative agriculture: “farming and grazing practices that, among other benefits, reverse climate change by rebuilding soil organic matter and restoring degraded soil biodiversity–resulting in both carbon drawdown and improving the water cycle.” SEASONAL GOODNESS. Our weekly harvest box carries seasonal produce and food products. The summer allows for a bounty of farm-fresh, delicious produce; through the winter, you’ll receive stored root crops, microgreens, greenhouse vegetables and food products such as preserves, honey or coffee. Alternatively, you can order from our webstore anytime, too!
