    I love this “underground” movement that is sweeping Calgary ! Leave it to a few dedicated people to change the course of history and I believe that you all will. I hope to be as supportive as I can…. Thanks to all of you – Eliese, Verge Permaculture, beekeepers everywhere and on it goes.
    I hope that this behaviour becomes mainstream so that everyone thinks this way!
