Caring for Our Planet
In the past few years, we have developed two environmental stewardship projects at Calgary Centre for Spiritual Living spearheaded by John Daly: The Farm, a community supported agriculture farm and The Bees, an urban bee hives project. Both of these project have taken place onsite at the centre. Members invested in The Farm shares and received fresh, organically-grown vegetables on Sundays. Workshops were held for the Funday Kids and adults around growing food and understanding the role of pollinators like bees. Projects like these helped Calgary Centre for Spiritual Living to win the Community Award from our parent organization, Centers for Spiritual Living in 2019.
Urban Beekeeping Onsite
Calgary Centre for Spiritual Living partnered with Alveole, the urban beekeeping company, and supported four beehives (40,000 bees) that helped bees thrive in the city. In addition, they provided education around the importance of bees in our ecosystem, plus produced some delicious honey.
CSA Farm Onsite
Previously unused land east of our parking lot was turned from sod into an urban farm.
The farm served as an educational tool for our children and youth programs.

Community members invested in the environment by purchasing shares in an urban farm. The farm provided fresh, organically-grown vegetables to shareholders throughout the summer and fall.
