Calgary Seedy Saturday

Join us Saturday, March 17, 2018, 10am-3pm at the Hillhurst – Sunnyside Community Association (1320 5th Ave NW)

Calgary Seedy Saturday is keeping the skill of growing from seed to seed alive in Calgary. As large commercial seed companies consolidate and only offer more hybrids and patented varieties, we are increasingly losing the regionally adapted collections that have developed in our unique prairie climate.

Calgary Seedy Saturday helps maintain this irreplaceable genetic diversity by offering non-hybridized, non-GMO varieties of seeds. You and your family can discover the superior taste of heirloom vegetables, learn to save seeds and share them with your neighbours. As you grow them season after season these seeds will adapt and grow that much healthier!

Easter Eggstravaganza

Enjoy two days of classic springtime fun at the Calgary Zoo. This year we decided to spring into action for wildlife conservation! Kids of all ages will love the fun-filled family activities including face painting, sweet treats, bunny races, cookie decorating and more.

March 30 – 31, 2018
9 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Calgary housing market prices hold, but sales fall

Residential home sales declined in February, but a decline in new listings helped keep prices steady this

Sales totaled 1,094 units in February, 18 per cent below last year’s activity. Easing sales occurred across all property types this month, which outpaced the sales growth that occurred in January. After the first two months of the year, sales activity remains well below longerterm averages.

“Housing market conditions are still adjusting to rising lending rates and changes in lending requirements. This process is expected to be
bumpy, with demand adjustments leading the changes,” said CREB® chief economist Ann-Marie Lurie.

“However, it is important to remember that it is early in the process and the impact on prices will ultimately be dependent on the supply

3 Easy Easter Craft Ideas

Easter, and hopefully spring, too, is on the horizon — good news for anyone with a sweet tooth. However you choose to spend Easter Day, it is a chance to try out some really neat crafting projects. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Monogrammed eggs instead of place cards
    If you’re having people over for a meal, this is a great way to add a seasonal touch to your place settings. Instead of place cards, hard-boil some white eggs, and then, use a gold paint marker to write each guest’s initials.
  • Create magical, mottled eggs
    While you won’t want to serve up rare bird eggs at Easter (or any other time), you can easily create some that look like they come from a mythical creature (depending on your colour choices). Take some regular white eggs, and dye them as you would normally. You can use any colour, as long as it’s not too dark. (You want your next colour to show up!) Then, choose some acrylic paint in a another colour, and water it down very slightly. Dip a fine paintbrush into the paint, and splatter the eggs for a realistic mottled effect.
  • Simple sock bunnies for the little ones
    Mix it up from all the chocolate by giving your children a handmade sock bunny this Easter. It’s really simple, too! First, fill your sock with one cup of rice. Then, use clear elastic bands to create a head and body. The remaining, unfilled part of the sock will become your ears.

    Next, use a circle of felt to create the bunny’s tummy, smaller pieces of felt for nose and teeth, a pair of googly eyes, and a cotton ball for its tail. Lastly, cut the loose part of the sock in half and round off for the ears.
