Photos of Verge HQ in 2011

Posted by Rob Avis over 2 years ago

Since Fall of 2008 we have been developing our urban homestead in the cold temperate climate of Calgary, AB, Canada. From the tricky chinook winds, to massive hail storms, to -30 or colder, there is a lot to take into consideration here.

2011 has been an exciting year of observing and interacting with the ecosystem that surrounds our urban home. There have been many successes, and many great learnings! Below is a link to some photos which are just a peek at some of the things we have been up to at Verge HQ. 

This has been our first full season with the passive solar greenhouse up and running, and our 3rd year having our forest garden and veggie gardens. As you can see we are really starting to fill out every edge of the property with diverse food production. Take a peek at some of the yields on our website:
