The Alberta Girl Acres
Cut Garden Club
Introducing our brand new Cut Garden Club! From February until October, plan and dream with us, with exclusive access to our own articles, resources, seeds*, specialty seedlings**, and lots of other sweet perks and bonuses! Chase away the winter blahs by filling your mind with plans for your gorgeous future garden!
This club is designed for hobby gardeners with a special interest in cut flowers. Focused on accessible, sustainable, and all natural growing methods, our primary aim is to help you create the healthiest and most beautiful garden for any space you might have. Sarah will share our processes throughout the growing season, as each topic becomes applicable to our Northern gardening schedules.
Memberships are annual, and we are offering two membership tiers: Standard and Premium. Premium includes our seeds and seedlings, which will be available in limited supply to local members. See further details below.
All of our club's content will be shared via weekly and monthly e-newsletters, emails, and scheduled zoom meetups for questions. For local Premium members, seeds* and seedlings** will be shared via mail and pickup.
*Our farm's seeds will be available to Canadian growers only.
**Our farm's speciality seedlings will be available to local members only. Members will be asked to pickup seedlings up directly from our farm, or from a designated Calgary pickup point.
If you are indigenous, First Nations, or Métis, please get in touch before registering. We would be happy to make this program more accessible to you in whatever way we can.
