on this wednesday morning we split up into pairs and walked up the street with intent to meet some local business owners or employees willing to talk with our class about their experience in the neighborhood. It was nice that most of the local shops seemed more than happy to welcome us and speak with us. Erica, the owner of Garnish, told us of the Alberta Business Association which covers issues such as street maintenance and safety. She was very enthusiastic about the community and had the attitude of "the more the merrier."
