It's been nearly two weeks and no one has answered your post. So I will. I'm not a trained permie either, just a wannabe, nor do I live in Alberta. However, I did live in Calgary for many years, so I sympathize with you for trying to grow anything there!
There are indeed some Alberta permies around; a lot in fact. I'm living in Edmonton but I know for a fact that there are local permaculture groups both here in the city and in Calgary; I also suspect that there are some things going on in Red Deer as well seeing that they are pushing for a Transition movement. Of these three, I know the most about what's happening in Edmonton; here's what i can tell you.
The Edmonton Permaculture Group meets regularly to socialize and share permaculture knowledge, we're currently organizing a Permaculture Convergence to be held on May 1, 2010, inviting permaculturalists and people interested in permaculture from all over Alberta. There are a few different links/was of contacting the group.
Also, I should have talked a little about the transition town movements going on in Alberta. Thought very new, (still in the planning phase) we have Transition Edmonton; more information can be found at:
