Rita Clyde, one of our farmers, is teaming up with Creation Care Calgary to offer two gardening workshops on April 25th. The workshop in the morning is family focused with lots of hands on activities. The workshop in the afternoon is aimed at slightly older growers and will be focused on supporting great harvests in Calgary's difficult conditions. We are happy that fellow YYC Grower Marcus Reidner of Happiness By the Acre will also be there to help answer your questions.

Faith Based Farm
Little Loaves is a faith based farm. That means our faith informs our choice to farm, how we farm and what we do with the bounty. It doesn't mean that we evangelize at folk, but if you ask, well we will be happy to talk about it.
