  1. I own a business in Strathearn, Therapeutically Balanced Massage Company. We have been affected by the Valley Line construction and TransEd is about to close 95 avenue between Connors road and 85 street for the rest of 2019. I’m worried for my fellow businesses in Strathearn and I hope you will consider a cash mob for as many of them as you can. Lee’s Convenience Store, Wired Cup Coffee, Red Ox Inn, Ralph’s, Dorothy’s Appliances, Juniper, there are so many businesses that need Edmonton’s love and support right now. Thank you!

  2. Dear LOCAL GOOD,

    I was wondering if the your organization would be interested in sharing an event on your respective social media.

    As you may know Sustainable Food Edmonton (“SFE”) (founded in 1989) is a local registered non-profit charitable organization who initiates and supports projects and programs to encourage the building of community through urban agriculture. Among its many projects SFE connects communities and kids with their food, how it’s produced, and the planet that makes it all possible. You can learn more about SFE and its work here: http://www.sustainablefoodedmonton.org/

    Right now SFE is returning (started last year) with their recognition program called the Golden Wheelbarrow Awards (GWAs), which recognize/celebrates local businesses and individuals that are making the City of Edmonton a better place through environmentally sustainable practices.

    There are five categories:
    (1) Favourite Environmentally Conscious Small Business;
    (2) Favourite “Locavore” Restaurant;
    (3) Favourite Community Garden;
    (4) Favourite YEG Agriculture Business; and
    (5) Sustainability Citizen of the Year

    In June 2019 SFE opened a survey to the general public to gather suggested nominees (based on specific criteria). Roughly 50 nominations were given, and SFE narrowed it down to the top 15 finalists (3 per category), which are now being voted on by the public via an online poll. You can learn more about each of the finalists, and find the poll, here: http://www.sustainablefoodedmonton.org/golden-wheelbarrow-awards

    Voting ends Friday, August 9, 2019, and the winners will later be announced at SFE’s Annual community league Fall Harvest Fair (details TBD), where the winners will receive a personalized wooden award, crafted by local artisan.

    If the Local Good has any interest, please consider sharing the survey link and basic award info on your social media, and maybe consider using the hastags: #SFE or #GWAs2019.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Regards,

  3. Greetings!

    Hoping you folks might be able to help me out. I attended the Green Drinks event this past Wednesday (November 13) and was speaking with the City of Edmonton Climate Change staff about their buildign retrofit targets. We got separated once we hit the point in the conversation where business cards were about to be exchanged and never managed to meet again as the event was ending.

    Do you happen to have the names of the staff who attended as CoE representatives? The event listing has all other presenters listed but only says “climate change staff from the City of Edmonton”.

    Thank you in advance for your assistance, it’s greatly appreciated.

    Warm regards,

  4. Hey there,

    Thought I’d reach out about urban agriculture and to see if there is any conversations already happening during this crazy time.

    I’m interested in supporting communities and urban agriculture for food security and self reliance. This might involve rallying experts in the area to share knowledge and help people effectively grow their own food, which hopefully could be an initiative that grows and sticks in Edmonton for the long term. But right now maybe incentive, but needs direction.

    If you have any thoughts or suggestions I’d appreciate some feedback. Or maybe you know of something already happening.

    Thanks for your time

  6. Hi there!

    I’m contacting you on behalf of the International Festival of Winter Cinema, the world’s greatest free, outdoor winter film festival in Edmonton, Alberta! Through this short survey, we’re hoping to learn more about our community partners, your awareness of IFWC, and explore potential opportunities to engage and collaborate with you or your organization. This questionnaire is in collaboration with the MacEwan University Arts and Cultural Management program and is part of completing a course project.

    The questionnaire should take approximately 5-10 minutes and your responses will remain anonymous unless you decide to share your contact information at the end of the survey. If necessary, please redirect this questionnaire to the most appropriate contact within your organization.

    The questionnaire will be open until Thursday, November 12 at 11:59 PM. It’s a really busy time for everyone right now, however, in order for the project to stay on schedule, we would really appreciate a response by the deadline. I will send a reminder three days before the questionnaire deadline date.

    Your feedback is greatly appreciated and will help to create great art and build community.

    Thank you so much for your participation!

  7. On April 12, 2021 the Executive Committee of Edmonton City Council will vote to increase cash fares from $3.50 to $3.75 for a single ride.

    I’m reaching out on behalf of Free Transit Edmonton to see if you’d like to be a partner for our Freeze Fares Now! petition to City Council. The petition launches on Monday, April 5, 2021. Understandably this is short notice, but Edmonton City Council is also providing little to no notice about this cash fare increase.

    City Administration says a fare increase is the only way to offset low ridership during the pandemic. But, raising fares will only decrease ridership while failing to solve the problem. In the midst of a global pandemic and economic hardship for so many, Edmonton City Council must act to support essential workers and vulnerable people by freezing transit fares.

    Transit fare increases disproportionately affect those working low-wage jobs, QTBIPOC people, migrant workers, and people with disabilities. These groups have been forced to bear the brunt of the pandemic already. They should not be forced to suffer the consequences of budget deficits.

    We already have a few supports, and we’re excited to add more. Will you join us and endorse this campaign, and share the petition with your networks?

    I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have. Please feel free to get in touch if you would like to support this Fare Free Campaign, and we would love to discuss how to partner even further as we launch our campaign.

    Sincerely,
    Bailey
    Organizer with Free Transit Edmonton

    Fare Freeze Now! is a campaign of Free Transit Edmonton.

    Free Transit Edmonton is a grassroots collective calling for fare-free, accessible, and expanded public transit in Edmonton, Alberta.

    Hi there,
    Im Jessica with Fixxd Events. Im reaching out to you in regards to our upcoming fundraiser called Let’s Support YEG!. It will be a live streamed concert fundraiser based out of the Starlite Room and is fully dedicated towards the Edmonton Food Bank. We wanted to find a way to give back during these times and wanted to help as many people as possible and we found this would be the best opportunity. Our goal for the Food Bank is $5,000.00 or 15,000 meals ( every $1 = 3 meals). We also hope to bring light to as many small local businesses as possible. The Starlite Room is one of Edmonton’s most beloved music venues and we hope to help them stay afloat with this event. Any sponsors for the event have also been local Edmonton businesses as we want to promote them the best we can.

    I would love for us to be added onto your event calendar and event section of your website. We can be best reached by email for any more details or questions you may have!

  9. Good Morning!

    I just found your site and am so glad to see local things about local companies doing CSA’s and such! sO thanks! I’m a company in the Edson Area just getting going with a CSA program and was wondering if we could be added to your local list. I’m located between peers Alberta and Edson in Yellowhead County.

    Thanks and happy Tuesday!

  10. Hi there,

    My name is Marina, and I’m a part of Girl Up Alberta, a UN-associated non-profit coalition that encourages youth to be active in their communities and current issues. I attended your Green Drinks event back in 2019 at Polar Park Brewery and loved it.

    This is last minute, but seeing as tomorrow is World Environment Day, we wondered if we could feature your organization in an Instagram post about local organizations that fight for the environment.

    The post would include a brief description of your organization and what it does and a mission statement.

    Thanks,
