Do you want to use nonfiction to grow?

Notable nonfiction is well-crafted, surprising and thought-provoking.

Reading it combats loneliness, introduces new friends and mentors, helps create different habits and opportunities and challenges identity.

Writing takes that transformation even deeper.

A good biography or ancestor profile encourages deep reflection about identity and the meaning of life.

Book-length notable nonfiction ensures that all facets of an idea can be adequately and deeply investigated.

Journalism exposes truth, helps people solve problems, keeps authorities in check and encourages engagement in democracy and community. 

Businesses can create partnerships, build loyalty and express value through good content and a strong profile.

Do you want to live a seasonal life?

Seasonal living means changing how I eat, exercise and work as the weather changes, at least eight times a year. 

I'm part of the composting, gardening, farmers' market and cooperative buying centre teams at CAUS and Grand Potager.

Come visit us at the Verdun Municipal Greenhouses any Thursday, during the first weekend in March or on earth day.

I'm also at the Verdun farmers' markets between July and October.

Are you Canadian?

For several years now, I've been actively working on creating a seasonal, local, engaged life in which writing, community building and health take centre stage.  

Getting engaged locally has connected me to community groups, education, law, politics and religion. 

The process has made me feel more Canadian.
