Written by Amy Spark Recognizing this year has been a difficult and extremely changeable year for Alberta (including both provincial and federal elections, climate emergencies, and massive budget cuts from our provincial government), we wanted to connect as a community and recharge. We had two main objectives: a) To foster and deepen connections to each […]
