Are you passionate about wellness? Nature? Food? Gardening? Family? Community?
In a little over six months, The Wellness Almanac has shared photos, local news, insights, seasonal recipes and observations, and advice like how to pickle beets, pit cherries, tell a bobcat from a coyote, harvest seeds from your flower garden, understand the sobering effects of coffee, know why and where to keep your Xmas shopping local, plant a winter garden, wow dinner party guests with harvest box recipes, say “sunflower” in Uc’walmicts, and understand why stress is no joke – in short, exploring a range of ways to come to a personal definition and practice of wellness.
Coming up in the New Year, TheWellnessAlmanac.com will offer more seasonal recipes (including a One Pot Winter Warmers series of local’s favourite soup recipes), profiles of front line health workers, feature work from local artists, and continue with regular columns from community members.
Here’s how community members from Mount Currie, Pemberton, Area C, D’arcy, and Samahquam can contribute in 2013:
