Are you hungry for deeper dialogue about the climate crisis? Do you want to meet likeminded folks who are looking to build community around climate solutions? Session one will focus on introductions and setting expectations and core values of the group. We will have a facilitated discussion, and leave with a journaling prompt to work on before the next session. See you on March 26!

7 Low Waste Ways to Celebrate Spring
When I was a kid, my sister and I always received an elaborate Easter basket filled with treats. We looked forward to an egg hunt, hanging out with family, and having a big meal. Sometimes our celebrations happened over many days of the long weekend, and there was always something new to look forward to.…
No Spend Month Tradition

Top Fun Things to do With Your Teenage Son on a Weekend in Calgary
Calgary sits in Treaty 7 territory.

Not Ladylike is based out of Treaty 6 territory and is the homeland of Metis Nation 4. Many First Nations and Indigenous peoples have gathered here and their continued presence has enriched and built the place I am proud to call home. As I work to build a community here, I am actively aware of how we are in relationship with the land and the larger community of human and non-human beings. This land acknowledgement not only seeks to recognize Indigenous peoples impact on these lands, but to actively reject a colonialist view that the lands offer only a resource to be used and extracted. The land is a part of us, a part of me. I want to thank the land for providing a backdrop to my fondest memories. It is integral to my personal history, story and wellbeing. And therefore integral to the Not Ladylike Community. Through this Community I want to help other folks connect with each other as they connect with this space and time that we occupy. And I want to ensure that we steward the land so our children and their children and so on, have the opportunity to enjoy it as well.
