As a youth at 4-H summer camp, Jayme’s world opened up to environment, sustainability and community issues. She learned the importance of education and shared perspectives. Jayme loves watching people’s faces light up when they make important connections, and see the world in a new way. It starts with the opportunity to explore and discover. That’s the promise behind every sunrise, and the reason Jayme wakes up every morning.
Dan (he/him) is a born-and-raised Calgarian who has spent the majority of his professional career eating his way through the Canadian food and beverage scene. Although he was initially in search of great-tasting food, what he found instead was a passion for both the environment and his local community. When Dan isn’t working, you can likely find him shooting hoops on a neighbourhood basketball court, riding his bike through Calgary’s vast pathway network, or exploring the wonder of the Canadian Rockies.
