Bunchberry Meadows now open

The Nature Conservancy and Edmonton Land Trust made this happen. With the warming weather make sure you check out this place. It's a 250 hectare conservation area of native Parkland located just west of Edmonton.

2017 Highlights

Here are a few tidbits from last year's field season!

Shruti, our Sustainable Business Intern in Local Promotion, Marketing and Sales put together this booth for the Bloomin' Garden Show. Thanks so much for your help!

2017 was a final acceptance certification year for our ponds at Aurora-Walker Lakes. So we made sure everything looked the best it could be!


Next up was the Graydon Hill overflow pond. I wanted to make sure I snap a picture of the spring flooding before water disappeared later in the season.


Our 2nd final acceptance certification last year was at the Riverside SWMF in St. Albert. Only two years after construction completion, the site is progressing very well! I would say the life soil transfer was a huge success!


You might have also seen us at the downtown Edmonton and St. Albert farmers markets. I know I know, the hats are awesome!

Bare with me as I am trying edit this video. Apologies for blabbering in German. I was simply wishing Dan farewell ;)


Lastly, we planted a new site in Heritage valley in the fall. Hopefully Towne Centre will flourish next spring!
