Happy Alberta Farmers’ Day!
One of the great aspects of my gig writing for
magazine is the opportunity to sit down with farmers and talk about their life’s work. Their passion never ceases to amaze me and it’s a privilege to be an ear with which they choose to share it. Savour Calgary
This month’s issue of Savour Calgary magazine presents just a few of the amazing people growing food for us in Southern Alberta, including Allpa Vertical Farms, Red Fox Fungi, and Solstice Berry Farm.

There are SO many other great producers out there and I hope to share more of their stories in the months to come.
Look for their products at fine restaurants and grocers across Calgary, and at farmers’ markets throughout the region.
And join me in thanking all Alberta farmers for the essential work they do to keep us happy and healthy!
