Cut Garden Club
Registration for our 2021 Cut Garden Club is now closed. Registration for the 2022 season will open January 2022.
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 offer two membership tiers:
Standard - $100.00 + gst
Standard members get access to our weekly content from February until October. When we have seeds and seedlings available, Standard Members get purchase access to what we have in stock (we do not make seed/seedling sales public yet). Standard Members also get access to our annual fall bulb preorder.
Premium - $250.00 + gst
A Premium Membership includes access to our weekly content from February until October, as well as $150 in credit which may be applied to our seeds, seedlings, and fall bulb preorder. Premium Members get "first dibs" on all our stock. Please note seedlings are available in limited supply, to *local members* only, as we cannot ship them.
All of our club's content will be shared via weekly and monthly e-newsletters, emails, and scheduled zoom meetups for questions.
*Our farm's seeds and fall bulbs are available to Canadian growers only.
**Our farm's speciality seedlings will be available to local members only. Members will be asked to pickup seedlings 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.
