You are invited to an intimate evening of Stories out of Africa.

Not all news is bad news. Come enjoy Petr H.’s heartwarming story of the birth of a community garden in the desert lands of Burkino Faso alongside his original musings on the grand piano.

Desert tastings and conversation to follow in the lobby.


Petr Hlisnikovsky has lived in Canmore for the past year. He grew up in the Czech Republic in a large family in which music and gardening were cornerstones. In 2017, he went to Africa with the intention to help create something needed in the local community where he landed.  Growing their own food surfaced as the communities greatest need, so Petr went to work alongside a handful of local community members and a garden was born. As the garden grew, so did interest and involvement, and the garden continues to thrive, sustained local people.
