There seems to be a lot of anger in the world at the moment, but here is something we can all agree on – beautiful flowers make pretty much everyone happier, so if you can, you should probably plant some. Not sure where to get them? The @saskatoonfarm has you covered for everything from tomatoes to succulents and all the flowery plants, shrubs, and trees in between! The garden centre at the farm is officially open 7 days a week now, from 9am-5pm with a few COVID related logistical tweaks. Social distancing and online ordering? Check! Early bird shopping for seniors and the immunocompromised? Check! The most smile-worthy plants around? Check! Brighten up your life with some new flora, just hit up @saskatoonfarm first to brush up on the new rules and then head out!

Alberta Parks Campgrounds Set To Re-Open June 1st
Date: Online Booking Begins on May 14
Location: Alberta Parks
Ah yes, we have more of these good news / bad news situations here for you. First up, the good news… @alberta_parks campgrounds are set to reopen select grounds on June 1, which is super rad. Physically distant fun outdoors is good for the mind and the soul right now. Reservations open again May 14th using the site reserve.albertaparks.ca. The bad news? There will only be half as many spots open for now, sites are only open to Albertans, no group or comfort spots opening this year and there is still a campfire ban. Keep checking on the @alberta_parks insta for more information and changes to regular rules as they come up.
