Sat, May 2 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Advocacy organizations, unions and other groups are organizing a rally on May 2nd at 1:00 PM on the steps of the Alberta Legislature to call on Albertans to vote for the public good. The rally will highlight how the proposed cuts to health care, education, post-secondary, human services, and seniors care will hurt Albertans. People are angry that instead of fixing the province’s revenue problems fairly, the PC government is planning to cut vital public services to families and increase user fees. Elections belong to the people and Albertans will be the ones to decide what their Alberta will look like. Voting matters.

It’s a great way of catching up with people you know and also for making new contacts. Everyone invites someone else along, so there’s always a different crowd, making Green Drinks an organic, self-organising network. These events are very simple and unstructured, but many people have found employment, made friends, developed new ideas, done deals and had moments of serendipity. It’s a force for the good and we’d like to help it spread to other cities. Contact your local node to get the latest info about coming along.Please note that attendance is at the discretion of The Local Good.

With a few mouse clicks, overnight shipping, and a few hours work, you can build your own versions of ground-breaking products based on simple open platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone, Galileo, Edison, and more. Even better, you can create something that has not physically existed. It is the flexibility and power of computing, expressed in physical, tangible form.

The Southwest Edmonton Farmers’ Market is a not-for-profit, volunteer run organization committed to creating a community gathering place for the residents of southwest Edmonton. We connect local farmers, producers and artisans who provide fresh, locally grown and made food and hand-made goods with our citizens, fostering relationships that create a greater sense of community and a stronger local economy. The SWEFM mission is to create a community gathering place for the residents of southwest Edmonton, creating strong relationships, communities and local economy. In addition to providing a place to shop for locally grown and made food and hand-made goods, this will be accomplished by providing a compelling and welcoming space, offering quality events and entertainment, and relevant and engaging programming. We also believe that this is accomplished by ensuring the success of our vendors by providing a favourable business environment, reasonable vendor fees, marketing and promotional support.

Come join us every Wednesday year round at the Sherwood Park Community Centre (new library building). With over 70 vendors, it is easy to find fresh local produce, meats, bread and baking- everything you need just in time for supper.While visiting, check out local artisans for some stunning jewelry, beautiful baby clothes and other lovely crafts. Maybe you need a few plants for the front flower beds, you are sure to find what you are looking for and maybe a little extra.At our market you are guaranteed to find local products made or grown by local producers. The Sherwood Park farmers’ market upholds the “You Make It, You Bake It, You Grow It, You Sell It” philosophy allowing customers to meet and talk to these local producers. Stopping by the market gives you the opportunity to see and sample the quality products that are made and grown right here. As Alberta Agriculture says “Customers can talk to the person that grew the carrots, raised the chicken, baked the bread, produced the jam, or knit the sweater”. For many of our vendors, the farmers market is their main retail opportunity.The market is a great way to enjoy high quality seasonal food in a great atmosphere. We have many concessions that offer a unique take on international flavours and locally produced foods. Meet up with friends and family to check out what we can add to your shopping experience.

DARK MEÆT
Wed, May 27 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm

Note: this is not the usual MEÆT event, and we’re expecting to sell out quickly (especially given the uniqueness of the experience and the interest it’s garnered). See the description below for more details.Edmonton’s NextGen is excited to be hosting DARK MEÆT for a second time…DARK MEÆT brings together the idea of dining in the dark, which has become popular in restaurants in Toronto and Montreal, with microfunding and storytelling for a night that is like no other.Guests will enjoy a three course meal that appeals to the senses: smell, touch, and of course taste. The catch is, you will be blindfolded, to let your other senses take the lead. The food will be gluten and nut free, and a vegetarian option is available (option upon registration).During dinner, we will have auditory entertainment, and you’ll hear local pitches for home grown ideas. You’ll then have the opportunity to vote for the pitch you’d like to help fund. After dinner, you’ll have a chance to mingle with your sight back! What is MEÆT?MEÆT is a local crowdfunding event designed to bring us together for a meal and listen to a variety of home-grown ideas. The one thing all the presenters have in common is that they need your funding to bring their idea to reality.You can (1) apply to present your project, or (2) experience the presentations and vote for your favorite. Out of the ticket price, goes towards the pot for the evening. Though no matter which side of dining table you are on; you will enjoy a dinner with excellent conversation with like minding philanthropists.The best presentation (as determined by the votes) receives the night’s funding.Please note there are no ticket refunds.

Heart of the City Festival
Sat, Jun 6 12:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Our Mission is to provide a free, family-friendly music and arts festival in the heart of Edmonton that promotes and supports original, local and emerging artists.The Heart of the City Music and Arts Festival started in 2003 as the result of a series of open stages at the Bissell Centre’s community drop-in. During that time, there were many community initiatives being brought forth by passionate citizens of Edmonton who wanted to improve McCauley for the residents as well as visitors. Through the efforts of people like Roy Agnew, Mark Ruble and Darlene Arsenault, an idea to foster the development of musicians from Edmonton’s inner city with a music festival was born.As the festival grew, so did many of the musicians. Several of our performers have continued their musical journey, playing at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival and other venues around Edmonton. As time went by, new faces joined the board of directors and new features were added to the program of events.Today the hundreds of partners and volunteers for Heart of the City still work hard for the mission: to provide a free, family-friendly music and arts festival in the heart of Edmonton that promotes and supports original, local and emerging artists.
