Paul Hughes is a food activist who has put his energy into a farm where the entire harvest is being donated to the local food bank!  Just west of Canada Olympic Park, in Calgary AB, is a 4.5 hectare farm.  Land that is being used to fill the food hampers for Calgary families and individuals. 

The organization is totally run entirely by volunteers.  And they are always looking for more.  Don’t be afraid if you don’t know what to do.  They will help you and teach you. 

What a fantastic way to make sure the community has FRESH produce.  A typical food bank donation usually consists of non-perishable items. 

Happy Birthday, Grow Calgary! Celebrating their first year.  Here’s to many more.
I had the chance to chat with Paul.  Listen to our conversation here on SoundCloud.
