Canmore Community Garden in Alberta


Beautiful video about Crystel Vultier who helped create the garden.

Plots for 100 gardeners

By VergePermaculture

Crystel Vultier is a true local food purveyor for her home town of Canmore, AB. Over the past several years she has been instrumental in creating the Canmore Community Garden which now provides plots for over 100 gardeners in the city and area. She has also created a project called Farm Box which sources local and organic food directly from farmers in Alberta and BC, and distributes it to 130 families in a weekly CSA program,

as well as making the abundance of healthy produce available to the whole city through a booth at the local farmers’ market.

Watch how one person’s potential to create positive change is realized through hard work and permaculture tools, and see how quickly the ripples have spread to effect her entire community.

Chrystel and Avni are definitely recreating the conversation and work around local food in Canmore. Super amazing, intelligent people that will likely do bigger and bigger work on food and policy in Alberta in the near future. Great video! Thanks for posting and cheers to local food purveyors!
