Welcome to Poppy Innovations

Empowering people to make healthy food choices is the recipe for building healthy communities.

Poppy Innovations offers programs and ‘gate to plate’ workshops that teach adults, children, and families to grow and harvest their own produce, can preserves, and to prepare healthy and delicious meals.

Our cooking programs “Cook with Your Kids” and “Parent & Child Culinary Class” are available in southeast and northwest Calgary.  For our adult and teen crowd, we offer Gate to Plate Cooking Classes and our way to help restore mealtimes being a time to connect with family, One Meal One Family program.  We have a community garden in De Winton with plots for lease to serve residents in South Calgary, De Winton, Okotoks, and High River.  With increasing numbers of Canadian children suffering from diet-related health problems, including obesity and diabetes, we are committed to promoting and supporting healthy kids and healthy families.  We know that our communities are healthier when we all eat well and we share the responsibility of raising awareness and promoting better nutrition and food preparation.

Poppy Innovations also offers management consulting in the areas of business planning, project management, and strategy development to support your business to grow and cultivate your organization’s potential.  Like healthy eating and living, we find effective solutions to business challenges to achieve your company’s goals.
