The Alberta Girl Acres
Cut Garden Club
Registration for 2022 is now closed.
From March until October, find a bit of peace and join us as we plan our gorgeous summer gardens. Sign up for access to articles, how-to resources, specialty seedlings*, and lots of other sweet perks and bonuses!
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.
*Seedlings are limited and are available to our Local "Seedling Plus" Members only.
Memberships are annual, and we offer two membership tiers:
Standard - $100.00 + gst
Standard members get access to our weekly content, including garden planning, growing how-tos, strategies for pest and disease mitigation, and features on favourite cut flowers and vegetable varieties, all from March until October.
Local "Seedling Plus" - $150.00 + gst
Our Local "Seedling Plus" Membership includes access to our weekly content from March until October, as well as $50 in credit which may be applied to our spring seedlings. Please note seedlings are available in limited supply, to *local members* only (Calgary and area), as we cannot ship them. Members will be asked to pickup seedlings from a designated Calgary pickup point, location TBA.
