Bare Bottoms Diaper Drive

Did you know that 1 in 5 moms struggle to provide clean diapers for their children? This Mother’s Day, help a family in need.

The Calgary Food Bank experienced a 16.5% increase in demand in 2016, providing 4,141 baby hampers to families in need and they rely solely on donations for diapers. The Bare Bottoms Diaper Drive was started in 2013 by an amazing Calgary Food Bank volunteer who wanted to address a need in the community. As anyone who has ever cared for a baby will tell you, costs can add up quickly!

We’ll be collecting diaper donations from May 11th - 14th and welcome:
- new and opened packages of diapers
- all sizes needed, particularly 5 & 6
- pull-ups and training pants welcomed too

Edible Planter Workshop

Create attractive and edible planter arrangements that will decorate your doorstep and your kitchen table.  Poppy Innovations’ will show you this fun method of growing your own food without taking out grass for a garden.  Great for those living in apartments and small spaces or students with an interest in eating locally.

Compost and an assortment of edible plants will be provided.  Bring your own planter (about 12-14 inches in diameter) or purchase one of Poppy’s eco-friendly jute containers or apple basket. The jute bags with a square bottom to stand upright on your front step or patio are completely breathable. This allows air to enter the root zone, creating a healthy environment for the roots. Roots are naturally air pruned as they reach the edge of the container, allowing uptake of more water and nutrient to the plant.

Cost $50 (price includes all plant material)

Jute bag and apple baskets available at cost of $25 each
