EDMONTON | SOCIAL ENTERPRISE & COMMUNITY ECONOMICS |

FYI | SOCIAL ENTERPRISE | COMMUNITY ECONOMICS | Some may be related to new technologies, others to goods & services. What they have in common is the remarkable enthusiasm, resilience and visionary calling among those leading and/or participating in such endeavours – it is indeed a powerful calling. Have a look! 

TIMBRE | http://www.timbreyeg.com/ was officially formed by Jordan Tomnuk of Tomnuk Design and Mike Lam of Mike Lam Design in 2015. Timbre began as a workshop that would soon be home to 9 other maker/designers. In July 2016 Timbre expanded their efforts into the now newly-renovated Timbre Studios. With the help of Hunt Amor, Jordan and Mike designed and built what is now a hub for thirteen creative start up companies. Our mission is to foster designers, craftspeople, creatives and artists. Currently offering shop spaces, studios and gallery rental. 

STRAWMAN FARM | http://strawmanfarm.com/ was founded on the idea to bring top quality, ethically raised bison meat directly to the people: ranch to table. Although Strawman Fram was founded in 2009, Bob and Lori Holm  along with Sons Stephan, Dylan,  and Liam,  are dedicated to a lifestyle of watching over and caring for their herds in a humane and ethical way. 

VERTO LABOUR SERVICES | http://youcan.ca/programs/verto | Companies that hire Verto Labour Services are looking for a good day’s work – and that is what they get. Eager young workers, trained in basic work-site rules, showing up on time, supported by a crew leader and ready to do whatever needs to be done. Verto is an off-shoot of YOUCAN Youth Services, an organization that has provided programs for at-risk youth in Edmonton for over a decade.
