  • Thiel's Greenhouses 4916 45 Street Bruderheim, AB, T0B 0S0 Canada (map)

Dig ‘n Dirt Day at Thiel’s Greenhouses! All day event from 10am - 4pm!
No registration required.

From 11am - 12:30pm Dora Berry will be speaking on the standards and basics to landscape installations for new planting areas! Learn about soil preparations, wood and rock mulches, landscape fabric or not, and planting of those trees, shrubs, perennials, and annuals!

“Do you have a passion for planting, giving back to the community, or both? Come have fun for a good cause! Thiel's will be donating planters, plants, and soil to create pallet gardens for Bruderheim. Once planted, the pallets will be moved to the Walker School Historical Building, where they'll be looked after and harvested by senior volunteers in the community. All of the food grown from the pallet gardens will be donated to the Food Bank. There will be lots of fun and activities. So come out, have fun, and take part in a wonderful project that benefits the whole community.

Schedule includes Butterfly, Wings 'n Wishes who will be on site from 10:30-12:30 and Dora Berry, from Nature's Elements - Sustainable Landscape Design, will talk about standards for landscape installations for building planting beds from 11:00 am-12:30. Dig 'n Dirt planting will begin at 9:30 am and be available throughout the day. "Surprize" draws for kids, too! The "Alberta Food Truck" will be on site.
This event is sponsored by CENOVUS, THIEL'S GREENHOUSES, Bruderheim Ag Society, Town of Bruderheim, and Communities in Bloom.”
