We’re on instagram, as @thewellnessalmanac.

Starting in January 2016, we invite local guestagrammers to take over the account, and share a week in their lives –  an approach of passing the lens back and forth that I hope will deepen our sense of appreciation and connectedness with the people living amongst us and around us.

Thanks to Gary Martin, who got us started way back in 2013. And thanks to Amie Le Blanc who was willing to step up in 2016, as our first official guestagrammer. Through the takeover experiment, our community of followers has tripled, and we’ve taken some amazing journeys through the neighbourhood.

Every Friday during 2015, we featured a Pemberton/Mt Currie instagram account that we rate as worth a look at.

For the low-down list on who to follow, in order to be inspired, and see the world through the eyes of some of the people and organisations who make our neighbourhood great, here’s the list. Artists, trailbuilders, restaurants, athletes, businesses, regular folk… they’re all part of the picture.

Someone you recommend? Let us know. Email thewellnessalmanac@gmail.com with your tip.

We’ve also featured special guests from afar:
