Events and Program Coordinator


Ally has a hat collection in the Groundswell office to allow for lots of quick changes. Her favourite is a big sun hat that is for working in the Community Greenhouse and Permaculture Garden, local farms and natural area with people of all ages. With a BSc. In Geography and Environmental Studies and a Bachelor of Education, she finds these places to be excellent living labs and classrooms for learning and teaching kinesthetic ecological literacy. She finds a warm toque is good for program research, planning, and reporting, especially during the cooler months in the Community Greenhouse. A selection of baseball caps are handy for managing the horticulture work in the greenhouse and working with youth interns. In her recreational time she wears helmets for biking and hockey and doesn’t wear a hat for playing music or mothering.
