Cowboy poems start with a story.

We all have stories to tell.

We usually collect stories from seniors about farming and ranching and rural life in general, the content of which we make into poems, as a way of honouring their story and preserving Medicine Hat’s local rural history.

In 2023 our main project is Poems and Paws, where we tell the stories of Meliora Service Dogs and other pawed creatures. Coming in April 2023.
